So far, so good.

I've got a good start on the twins' holiday dresses. I couldn't find a pattern, so I am having to significantly alter one I used for their dresses last year. I have somehow misplaced the instructions for the pattern, only the pages I need of course, so aside from having a few pattern pieces that I am using, I'm basically winging it.

I've got the linings put in and the collars on. Next are the sleeves, zippers, and hems. I am not good at zippers at all and I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to attach the tulle to the lining, but so far everything has gone really well! They are looking the way I hoped they would!

Next step is to find accessories for them. The dresses are so simple, that I was thinking pretty hair accessories would be nice. Something beaded and fancy! I found these silk flowers on clearance today, so I got them thinking maybe I could do some barrettes or a headband with them and add beaded centers. Any ideas or suggestions are welcome! I'll find some blue ones to go with the other dress.
