Sewing: Christmas Dresses

Last Christmas I made Audrey cute dress with a crochet top and corduroy skirt. This year I decided I wanted to make more classic dresses for the girls . I found this McCall's pattern M5305 and some really beautiful dark red babywale corduroy at JoAnn. (I used Simplicity pattern 3656 for Scarlett's dress and cut out a smaller version of the collar on Audrey's to make them alike.)

I love this pattern. I love the empire waist look. I made that view and lengthened the sleeves to make it more appropriate for the Christmas season.
I also added a big satin bow in the back in this great sap green color and covered buttons.

I would love to make this pattern and reverse the dress so it buttons in front (I'd do buttons all the way down) and change the collar to a simple peter pan. Maybe in a lightweight pink wool. Would be so cute.
