Introducing the Alpine Holiday Sister Dress.
LOL. This dress…..has been such a headache for me. Maybe because I had an incredibly busy week or maybe my photography just did not catch the colors correctly. Whatever the reason, I could not get this dress to look quite like I wanted it.
Here is the original version my mom and I designed. It looked perfect until I put it together. The knit and the cotton fabric – both red tones – just did not look good together. It happens. Both fabrics go through the same dye process, but the colors look strange together. It became very apparent to me once I looked at the photos, which I had taken in the sunlight. I honestly did not mind the fact that the reds were different, since I felt they were still in the same family, but as always I worried what my customers would think. So I spent the evening, and the next evening staring at this dress thinking, contemplating, pondering…….about what I should do, or what I could do to save this dress.
This was the final product, and I love it….just like I loved the first design. Haha. I finally ended up deciding that this dress could have so many different looks, which is why I had such a hard time deciding on the final version. I could even put the dress together just like the original Alpine Holiday dress with a brown knit, and the brown polka dot fabric as the ruffled trim. Lots of options, so I will just have to leave it up to you, or perhaps design a few more of these dresses. I will have to sleep on it, or dream about it. LOL. I will say this though, Olivia loves this dress. It is comfy, warm and so cute. She did not want to take it off.
