I need your opinion, please...

Hey Girls...I need y'all's opinion, please. I am thinking about the children's outfits for Christmas and pictures with Santa. Originally, I was going to do the green polka dots with the red and white polka dots. Then, I got a super sweet deal for the boys' sweaters and it totally changed up my plan. This is where y'all come in...

I plan on making the pink style dress, with layered gathered tiers in the way I have them laid out here.

Here are the boys' sweaters. I got Fisher's from Goodwill for $2.60 and its originally from Holland. Love it!! I got Jackson's from my new favorite thrift shop for 50 cents. Makes Goodwill sound like highway robbery, huh?? Anyway, I am thinking the boys will wear khaki pants?? We already have those and I am all about saving while I spend, you know what I mean?!?!


Okay, here is another view of Lilly's fabric choice. I plan for her to wear tights and black maryjane's. I am going to make more yo-yo's to either cover the headband or cluster to the side.



I plan on getting this sweater from Target to wear with the dress.
My questions are...
*Do y'all like the black, red, and white together??
*Does it pass for Christmas enough??
*Does it look too Disney or UGA{Georgia Bulldogs}??
Thanks in advance!!

I think it's beautiful! Maybe you could add some green accents (headband, yo-yo on the dress) just to drive home the theme?? I love the sweaters and Im sure whatever you do will look great!!

I think it will turn out beautiful! I love it when a special occasion outfit can be used more than once since he doesn't scream that particular occasion.

Hey, awesome deal on those sweaters! I like the two bottom fabrics, but I think you need a black background fabric with some white on it like damask or something instead of the white with smaller polka dots. It would provide some pop and make the other two stand out more. Hope that helps...good luck!

Erica said...

Hey - I agree with Amy :) The white with the smaller polka dots just kinda gets lost...can't wait to see what you come up with!!!! Good luck :)

I think it will be beautiful. I love those sweaters and the fabrics you chose to go with them work wonderfully. The sweater for Lilly will look beautiful with the dress.

Oh yeah...love the idea of those colors and the fact it can be worn anytime and not just Christmas. I hate when I buy things for Lexi and only for that occasion so now I try to get things to accersize her outfits and not so much for one holiday...I bet it will be cute as can be and you must share pictures...

Happy Thanksgiving my friend!
