Just popping in today to share a new pattern addition to the Made for Mermaids Dreamy Collection – the Noelle Dress & Peplum! This is a must-have pattern for anyone who sews for girls! It is gorgeous, comfy (all knit!), quick to sew, and twirly! There are so many options to dress it up for a fancy Christmas dress, or make a simpler version for everyday wear! There are so many possibilities!
And did I mention the twirl factor? I believe I did 😉 It is amazing! Maci could twirl in this dress for hours!
I am seriously loving the stretch velvet trend that is currently happening! It’s so soft and lovely, and the sheen is beautiful! It’s just a gorgeous fabric, and Maci loves how cuddly it is! I picked up this solid black stretch velvet from Joann. It was the only solid color they had in the store that had stretch and wasn’t crushed velvet. There are several online options for ordering other colors of stretch velvet!
Pair this gorgeous dress with a faux fur muff and some ear warmers, and you have the perfect holiday look! Cozy and warm, perfect for a Christmas Eve spent singing Christmas carols!
There are several combinations you can create with the skirts. For Maci’s dress, I did the peplum on top in black stretch velvet, then 3 layers of this gorgeous burgundy mesh at the dress length, and a solid black polyester swim lining under the mesh. I also picked up the stretch mesh at Joann. The look of the pettiskirt under the peplum is show stopping! We went to this fun little place called Gardner Village for our pictures. Maci was stopped so many times being told how beautiful she looked! She didn’t seem to mind that one bit 🙂
The layers add so much texture and dimension to the dress, and the high-low hem really adds to the effect. I’m obsessed!
And did you guys notice that huge snow storm last week!? No? Ok.. I may have had a little fun in photoshop creating a winter wonderland!
^^This is possibly my favorite picture I’ve ever taken of Maci. So dreamy!
