A Minnie Mouse birthday!

Okay... so... this one is long overdue. Maddie's birthday was almost a month ago.

Remember I made her this little dress for her birthday portraits. Well, check this out:



I also made her a little dress to wear to her birthday party- which was a Minnie Mouse theme. I love how it came out.




I used the bodice of one pattern and then did my own thing with the skirt, ruffle, and tie in the back.



I had to make matching bows, of course.



Ella would not model the dress for me, because Minnie Mouse didn't have any eyes. hahhahaha... she was so funny.

I had my little sister, Megan, make this embroidery file for me, because I thought it was cute.

I also, decided at the last minute to add some buttons to the bodice. I'm so glad. I think it added so much!!!



Here's some photos of the dress in action.





and I thought these were just TOO cute not to include.




and since I was digging up old photos yesterday.
Here's an oldie, but a goodie of me and my best friend- Maddie's daddy- Jason.

Cute as can be! I love the way you did the buttons down the rick rack. I might have to borrow that idea sometime.

Ummmmm, I TOTALLY saw this little girl getting her picture made in downtown Frisco!! I was driving down Main Street and saw that dress and thought, "I've seen that dress before, I think Nicole made on like like." Too weird!!!
