One of the things I made for Christmas for the girls was this sweet dress. It’s Sprout, and it’s adorable. A dress fully lined in flannel which was surprisingly easy to make. Granted as I was making two dresses, which was in effect four dresses it took a bit of time, but it was not complicated at all.

The girls love the dress, it’s oh so comfy, it’s only a shame I wouldn’t look so good in a flannel lined dress. I love that there are pockets, a sweet hood, and it’s warm enough to pair with tights even on the coldest days.

I made the girls sizes but added length in the arms and hem in order to make them wearable longer, though the babe is already at the end of the size four arms even though she’s only three, she’s a tall one. I did need to buy two patterns as the size gap between my girls hits right between the patterns, but that’s ok as the regular Sprout is size 0-5 and the Big Sprout is size 6-10 so I will get plenty of mileage out of them, this would be completely adorable on a wee one.

Looks like we’re in for a snowstorm tonight, the kids are thrilled, so I better run and get some laundry done in case we lose power, which oddly enough seems to happen a lot here and not usually when it’s bad weather. Take care and have a great day!
