I made matching Christmas dresses for myself and my daughter on her first Christmas. I used cotton for the bodice because it was more practical for a drooly baby than satin and also washes well. She was such a tiny tot that this 6 month size was still loose on her at 6 months old, but she still looked adorable! Abbagail’s dress is in a 6 mo. size, natural waist, square neckline, extra gathered cap sleeves, gathered double layer skirt, gold braided trim at waist, zippered closure in back, and poinsettia pin accent. My dress is a size 7 (approximately, I sized it to my exact measurements), empire waist, low square neckline, sleeveless, a-line double layer skirt, zippered closure in back, and poinsettia pin accent. I made the matching poinsettia pins as well.
