little birthday dress/facebook

One of Sadie’s little girl friends had her birthday party today! Sadie had a blast-it was a Cookie Monster theme and so fun! We picked out a fun puzzle for her at the store, but I also couldn’t help making her a little dress-it was really easy and sewed up pretty quick! I only used 1/2 yard of fabric for the skirt, sewed it into a tube, then cut off some of the store bought shirt, sewed them together, then added a sash and sewed that to the front of the dress. Really. easy!

I love the fabric-it’s from Darlene Zimmerman’s Betty Dear line: in Mod Floral Aqua. The pink has tiny white polka dots, don’t have the selvage anymore. Both of them don’t look like they’re available where I bought them. Darn! I didn’t get them too long ago either. Weird.

I had just enough to scrap together a matching hair clip as well.  I used one of Katie’s awesome buttons for the middle, with some embroidery thread for a punch of color. Cute! 
Hope the birthday girl likes it!
