Birthday Dress #6

Grace requested a "fancy" dress this year for her birthday.

I found a pattern and bought some poly-satin material in a dark and light pink, along with some light pink tulle.

I had a vision.

I altered the pattern; adding a foot to the length, an additional row of ruffles, and an additional sleeve.  I also made an underskirt of tulle for a "poof" effect.

It's in no way perfect; I think poly-satin is horrid stuff to sew with... but Grace (and I) love it.

As tradition, she got it the Sunday before her birthday and wore it to church.

She looked sooo cute!

I love this little tradition of ours...

... and my sweet little almost-6-year-old even more.
