Granddaughter's Christmas dress

Hello friends. 'Hoping that you all had a very nice and safe Christmas. It was so good to spend time with my twin sister and her family, and Mother. My daughter and her family also visited. Pictured above is a 100% cotton red velveteen jumper and blouse that I made for my darling granddaughter Macey. The pattern is a now-discontinued one: McCall's 3531. For the blouse, the jumper pattern with the collar was simply shortened. It is made of a white-on-white cotton with a snowflakes print. The monogram applique initials are of an ornaments-print fabric, and were custom made by: Dee Appliques' Etsy shoppe. There's just something about these fabrics that is so holiday-ish. Both fabrics came from Hancock Fabrics. Dee Appliques was willing to use the ornaments-print cotton for the monogram initials, so I simply mailed her enough of that fabric to work with. How nice is that? Awesome!

McCall's 3531 is a fairly simple pattern to construct, with three back button fasteners and a lined bodice. This earns the pattern a difficulty rating of:

Here is the matching hair bow for the McCall's red velveteen dress. It is made of the same ornaments-print fabric as the dress' monogram applique initials. Granddaughter Macey was all festive in this ensemble! Prim Winter blessings.
