EYMM: Kenzie's Holiday Dress Tour

It's that time of year to start thinking about holiday outfits.
Our family will be relocating out of state of December 23 so sewing is taking a backseat to packing and cleaning for awhile. 
But the Little Miss cannot go without a new dress for her holiday parties at school.
The simple version of Kenzie's party dress is perfect when you want something adorable and fast to sew. I love the classic look and the low back on Kenzie's Dress. For my version I shorten the skirt and added a band. 
The fancy version of Kenzie's is also amazing for when you want something a little more over the top. With this pattern you get two amazing dresses and the instructions on how to make them as skirts!
When I saw this fabric I knew I had to use it for Little Miss. 
Not only are we moving but we will also be getting goats, chickens and ducks!
This dress is perfect for her "barnyard" Christmas!

Now its time to start sewing your holiday outfits and to get you started...

Gracious Threads: A New Look Blog Tour

 Welcome to the Gracious Threads: A New Look Blog tour!
For those that do not know me I am Lore from Blessed x Five.
For  this tour we were asked to come up with an outfit that is "something new" for us. 
New style, new prints, new techniques. You name it!
I was so excited to try out a new look for Little Miss.
My little miss is definitely a girly girl. 
She loves dresses, the ruffly the better.
 Her favorite past time is playing baby dolls 
( But don't cross her! Her three brothers have taught her how to kick butt!).
As you can see "something new" came pretty easy!
For our look we went with the Jasper Joggers and the Raindrop Tee.
The Jasper Joggers feature pockets and faux welt pockets it the back. Little Miss has been infatuated with pockets lately. She was very happy to discover them on her pants. The Raindrop Tee is the perfect slim fit tee for the cool fall days. It also has an adorable high low hem.
I have to say even with out the ruffles and lace, this outfit is a hit!

Gracious Threads is graciously donating a free pattern to one of my readers!
Leave a comment below with something you a grateful for. At the end of the tour I will draw a winner!!
Make sure you visit Gracious Threads and all the other stops along the New Look Tour.

Life's a Dance

Little Miss has started taking dance classes.
So, of course she needed a new dance wardrobe!
Create Kids Couture recently came out with a bunch of new dance ware patterns.
I love how easy CKC makes everything.
Every dancer needs a nice black leotard. For ours we used the Asia pattern. Isn't it just adorable with the one shoulder strap.
When your leotard needs a little twist head to Brylee's! You can twist it up with a braid!
Sometimes perfection is in the details. With Helga's that is definitely true. The back has a unique woven heart. Paired with Helga's is Dottie's dance pants in the capri length.
Little Miss loves her lace. Lenora's and Dottie's shorts delivered!
We can't leave out baby! Baby and Little Miss are rocking their Raquel's.

The royal's leotard was released awhile ago but it is still a favorite.
Who wouldn't want to dress up like their favorite character and dance the night away?

Now, for your viewing pleasure...
