Christmas crafts: Elena's Dress

I had every intention of blogging my Christmas crafts as I completed things, before Christmas.  But here we are and I'm just starting.  At least it is still Christmas season, right?

I actually had Elena's Christmas dress finished, all but the last bit of hand sewing, done before December 1.  

The pattern is the Oliver + S Bubble Dress.  It's the second time I make a dress from this pattern, the first was for Elena's baptism.  The skirt looks so long that when I made the first one for her I actually cut off about five inches.  Then when I put it on her, five minutes before (or maybe after) I was supposed to leave the house you could see her diaper out the bottom.  I almost did it again this time, but resisted the urge, and in the end it was perfect.

The fabric came from Superbuzzy a long time ago.  I think it's a Tefle from Kokka.  The buttons are really lovely too, although it is hard to tell from the picture.  They belonged to an aunt of a friend of mine who used to have a sewing business.

Here's a little sneak peak at Lucia's dress, that post is coming up next.
