Birthday Outfit DONE!

I feel like I've procrastinated on Abby's birthday outfit this year. I've been busy making Christmas gifts, but finally got around to making Abby's 7th birthday outfit and it turned out amazingly well! I had ordered a 2-pack of long-sleeved Tshirts with the plan of embroidering one for her outfit. The cupcake design I found online (can't remember where- I found lots!) and the skirt was based off the Sydney skirt tutorial. I wanted a patchwork skirt like this one but didn't want to pay for a pattern, so I made the Syndney top layer out of stipwork pieces. It is fabulously full and twirly. I think Abby will be thrilled! Next I plan to buy some cardstock and make matching cupcake invitations. I think I'll try to cut the cupcakes of fabric and iron them on. We'll see how that goes - I'm a novice with paper!

I have enough fabric left to make one more. Who will get one next? I may offer it as a custom order in the shops. I'm still waiting for my first sale. Interested to see what will go first.

That's totally gorgeous! I'd love to make one of those skirts too - for my 9 year old... but out of velvets and corduroys to go with our cold weather.. I love the idea of the invites too - hope they work out! Emma x
