Birthday Dress

I love birthdays, so when it comes to my babies’ birthdays, they’re even more special {you can see Silas’s castle party round up here!}.  So, while Norah’s party might be a little more low key {read: my mom and dad aren’t here to help me get everything together}, I had to make some special birthday things.  So, first up is her birthday dress {I used the Abigail Peasant Pattern by Pink Poodle Bows again, but lengthened the dress and ruffle a little}.

And of course, Dolly’s dress matches.  I decided to leave her without a skirt, because I didn’t want to cut across the flowers.  I kind of wished the hair wouldn’t have been so dark, but that was the only color of felt I could find locally {it’s dark brown, not black!}, but I think perhaps I’ll order some wool felt and make another soon.

Now it’s all ready to be washed and worn on the big day, but I had to have her try it on and snap a few photos too!

I’m really looking forward to the special birthday.
