t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Brainstorming Christmas Dresses

Here are my ideas for Christmas dresses. I like the idea of doing something soft and flowy. I haven't ever made the girls a dress like that. I will have to run the ideas by them and check the fabric store.

I love the sleeves and satin embellishments on this one. I think in a different color, maybe cream or red?

What struck me about this dress, were the long flowing sleeves and the crocheted detailing. Classic but stylish. I also love the neck and soft pleats. I don't know how to crochet.

I love the bright red of this dress. Also I have always wanted to do a bubble skirt. Never have. The girls adore rhinestones. This one will most likely be their favorite.

Care to opine?

I like the first dress in red or cranberry,you might find applique for the white dress to replace the crochet.
