Lisa of Glitter in My Coffee, sewed the cutest Gabriella Fae for her daughter. Best of all if snowed before her photo shoot so the pictures are especially festive and magical. You won’t want to miss this tour! There’s also a pattern giveaway at the end so make sure to stop on over and leave a comment.
Walking in a Winter Wonderland with Sis Boom
by Lisa of Glitter in My Coffee
I’m sew excited to be part of the Sew for the Holidays with Sis Boom Blog Tour. One of my favourite things to do for the holiday is sew up a new holiday dress (or two, or three) for my mini. As always, she’s a big part of the sewing process – from selecting the pattern to helping pick out the fabrics. We took a special trip to Joann’s to get some fabric for this one and it ended up being a compromise between her first choice (cartoon Christmas dogs) and my first choice (vintage chalkboard print) and we wound up with this whimsical “naughty or nice” print. I love the combination of aqua, red and black in this fabric for the beautiful Gabriella Fae pattern by Sis Boom.
On the day we went to shoot photos for this post we were covered in snow. Mini Mi had already built a snowperson earlier in the day and has some fun posing with it in her beautiful new dress. The Gabriella Fae has a lot of options – sleeveless, short, 3/4 or full sleeves. I had originally intended to make this with elbow length sleeves but when I cut it out I realized I had underestimated my fabric and so it ended up sleeveless. To provide a little arm coverage I whipped up the shrug to cover her bare little arms for our outside shots.
