6th Birthday Dress

Thankfully Anna's actual birthday was "dress as your favorite book character" day at school and so I got an extra day to finish.

I had this fabric in my stash, I think I got it 6 years ago! at Hobby Lobby for $2 a yard.
This is the 5th time I've made this dress, I think maybe I've finally got it down. Just in time for her to outgrow the pattern.
I wanted to break up all that pink a little and so decided on a black dot ruffle and found ribbon to match. I added an inch to the ruffle-I'm really happy with that decision.

Happy Birthday, Sweet girl--thanks for posing!

Good thing you have another girl you can use the pattern for. Great dress. I especially like the picture with the little kick.
