Happy Birthday and a list of firsts

This little gal turned 7 on Tuesday. Not only is she one of my favorite neighbors, but she's my niece.
This was the look on her face when I showed her...


I used McCall's pattern 6020 for the bodice and sleeves. The brown satin I had on hand from a killer dealer at the fabric store.

It was my first time sewing a lace overlay. Not too shabby huh? I learned SOOO much doing this.

I love the side gathered sleeves and the flower was my own addition. You can't see it, but I also did a crinoline. First time actually sewing with tulle. I had only ever done the no-sew tutus before. It wasn't too bad, but the crinoline should have been more gathered. Oh well. next time maybe.

Linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish it up Fridays and Project Run & Play's Linky Party
