Every year I have tried to make her a special dress for her birthday, like here. But this year I've been a little pressed for time. I'm not sure I'm going to get any more time soon either :( So on Monday night I quickly made this simple dress for her. At least there is a little Liberty in it!
I traced an existing singlet of hers, sewed it up and then attached a simple gathered skirt with trim.
She really likes the dress and insisted on wearing it for the rest of the evening. Even to eat her special dinner, tacos. Yes the dress has taco slop down the front.... As you can see, or perhaps you can't, she also received some Frozen dolls for her birthday.
I also made her a new skirt. Adele has been begging for me to make her a skirt like mine, not gathered, but more tight. Naturally little girls and tight skirts don't mix, so I made this one more little girl friendly.
To start with it's made of ponte, a remnant from this top, and to prevent indecent wardrobe failures, I attached little shorts to the inside.
While she loves the dress, I'm pretty sure she loves the skirt more and wants to wear it tomorrow to her kindergarten orientation. She's so ready for school!
