Santa's Helper

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

So today I have a pretty rad Socialite Bubble Dress as part of the Lil Luxe Collection Blog Tour, and I am very excited to be sharing it with you! Remember how I said that I wasn't going to make the girls traditional green and red dresses back in this post? Well I am taking that statement back :)

Before we get into the details of M's Socialite Bubble Dress, this will be my third time sewing this pattern and I can't get enough of it. This is my first time sewing the bubble skirt version, and I am very pleased with the tutorial and outcome. Those princess seams have me swooning too! Ah, everytime lol What I love though is that you can make it full on Christmas crazy or have it be simple and chic. I'm thinking of doing my next one in a black ponte de roma. Wouldn't that be just dreamy!? If you have been thinking about buying the Socialite, you can do so by clicking here (affiliate link) and enter the code "blogtour" for 30% off !

This dress is made of two dresses that I upcycled. There is even enough left over to make Cora her dress too :) I don't know about you, but I really dig the combination of the green and the red with all those crazy polka dots. It screams "Santa's Helper". I am very tempted to make her some elf shoes to wear with them on the big day. Do you think I should?! 

The ballet scoop neck is so elegant on the Socialite Bubble Dress. Madison had the hardest time understanding that it doesn't have a button on the back, and insisted I add one. But when I showed her how easy it was to put on and take off... she was sold. We also love the sleeve options on the pattern. Madison likes the shoulder flounces, and made sure that they were included in her holiday attire.

Thanks for stopping by the blog to see what I have created :) There was a reason we did the shoot without shoes lol Cora was napping in their room, and I wasn't about to head up there to retrieve them and possibly wake her up. She cut her four top teeth and has been feeling under the weather, so sleep is a very good thing for her at the moment. But besides that, I hope you enjoyed!
