I made this Birthday Outfit for my Emmers (Emmalee). She turned 2 last weekend. We were in St. George, Utah visiting Great Grandma for the celebration. She caught sight of these stairs while sight seeing. I saw a photo op and had to pounce. (p.s. that squint in Emmie's eyes is her photo face, not the sun lol)
Look at those stairs. What two year old could resist!?!
I made the petti skirt out of somewhere near 80 yards of fabric. I had bottom fluff, but was so afraid I didn't have enough, I had to leave it off for the time being. I actually made the yolk yellow, but you can't see it. It is under the overskirt I had to try. I have been dreaming this one up for ages and finally put it to fabric. The pink overskirt is separate, and worked so well, I am certain I will have to make more. Then the petti skirt is so much more useful.
It was starting to get a little hot, thus the rosy cheeks. Here is my dolly is making is her picture-taking face again. She is not in pain, that is just what she does when she sees the camera come out. Nice, huh?
I fought for a long time over what to put on the shirt. Finally Madison suggested a party hat and I really thing it turned out cute. I couldn't decide on the fuzzy accents, but finally used eyelash yard, made a pompom for the top, and hand sewed it on loosely for the bottom. Couldn't have been cuter!
