My baby is one year older and much to my delight she requested a birthday dress! I have to say I was rather delighted to oblige her since she cut me out of Halloween! Yes, you heard it right. A near four year old took command of her Halloween costume. She came up with something already in her dress up stash and could not be swayed. I have to say I was seriously disappointed. As a a result, I was giddy with excitement when she announced a birthday dress was in order. If you are a Pinterest fan, you may have seen something very similar circulating recently. I used two different patterns to get the look I wanted. Most of the time even new patterns are just a remix of the same basic parts. I would be willing to bet that if you have even a dozen patterns in your stash you will have what you need to make just about anything by mixing and matching. I must say I am rather pleased with this one wishing only that I had made it just one size larger so she could wear it longer.
