I'd love to say that I made my daughter a Christmas dress. I didn't. I did buy her a fabulous handmade Christmas play dress by JAM Clothing Company, which she loves, but I don't even have a photograph of her in it.
What I do have is a photograph of Big Sister's first Christmas dress (from before she was a big sister and before I learned to sew). I had dreamed for years of dressing a baby in one of Ramonster's creations. Not long after having my baby girl, I tracked down Ramonster herself (whose name is actually Kathie) and asked her to make my little one a special dress. This is what we came up with.
It was my dream come true. That baby girl was my dream come true. Now I look at the tiny dress hanging in Big Sister's closet, and the tiny red shoes that can sometimes be found on Baby Doll Zoe, and I can't imagine there ever was a Christmas without this beautiful little person. For me, she is the magic of Christmas. She and her brother both.
