Since I have a precious little girl, I try to make the most of all the girly-ness that I can. After all, she may end up being a tom-boy for all I know! I want to enjoy dressing her up while she can't fight me about it. Then again, evidently when I was little I liked to wear 'twirly' pink dresses with shiny red shoes, and make mud pies in the backyard. So, maybe she'll have the best of both worlds too? ;)
I decided to try and make her an Easter dress this year. Making clothes scares me a little bit, because they have to actually FIT the person that will wear them. If I make something like curtains, it's okay if they aren't perfect. Well, her dress is FAR from perfect, but it's also adorable on her! Allow me to show you...
I would show you a close-up, but then you could see all the imperfections. ;) It's MUCH cuter on my baby girl too, but again, for her safety, I'm not going to show you a picture of her. (As if I was able to get a good picture of her wearing it on Sunday anyway...) ;)
I used THIS pattern from Walmart, where is it much cheaper, by the way. ;) I made a couple of changes to it by adding a sash so it would fit her, as well as a little iron-on butterfly. It was pretty easy once my sewing machine started working. ;) Maybe this has inspired me to make more clothes for her?? Perhaps.
On a side note, my hubby and I have been trying to redecorate M's nursery. By we, I actually mean me. My husband painted her room for me though. He's a WONDERFUL husband and dad. :) Anyway, I think I'll post pictures of the process so you can rejoice with me as we make improvements. I would say that I'll do that later today, but I don't want to lie again, so we'll just see what happens. Fresh (and non-ugly) paint? Check. New curtains? Check. Clean, organized closet? ..........
Have a happy Friday! :)
