Her special gift from me, naturally, was a new special dress - made with Liberty of course!
Mauvey. It is just stunning. A perfect amount of girly, but not too over the top. She is pictured here with her new Ariel doll and a newly beaded necklace from a kit she received from us.
Dancing like a ballerina....I used the Oliver & S Bubble dress pattern, without the bubble. I lined the bodice, but not the skirt. This time I made a size 4 and sewed scant side seams and a deep hem to ensure she gets two years of wear out of it.
More presentsI think this is my all time favourite dress pattern for little girls. If you haven't sewn one up yet, I highly recommend it. I think I must have used this pattern well over 15 times, possibly more with gifts and things.
Cake!We headed out for lunch today to also celebrate my sister's birthday. Adele picked the '4' birthday cake this year which made my life easier and I made my sister a little mouse, so she didn't feel unloved!
Happy birthday little miss and little sis!
