the 3rd birthday dress

Lola will be 3 in less than a month. I love that she's crazy excited about her birthday this year.  I've been thinking about what she'll wear to her party for a few months now (is that strange? I don't think about what I'm going to wear each day until I'm actually throwing the clothes on - but I love dressing her!)

So when I found this spotty, satiny type fabric at Spotlight on the $5/metre sale table - I knew it was what I needed.

And last night I sewed her dress.. I don't want to show it to you just yet (I think it will look much prettier on the birthday girl herself), but think 'Amelia top', but longer, with a pretty belt/sash :)

She tried it on this morning (so I could get the length), and had a bit of a meltdown when I told her she couldn't wear it yet.. I took that as a very good sign that she liked it.
