Every year when I go home, I take some birthday presents for my best friends kiddos.
Last year, Maddie requested a 'horsey' dress. Kids change their interests so quickly, but I was pleased to find out that she still liked horses this year!
I don't know what it is about horses, but it seems like all little girls go thru a phase of loving them. I missed my opportunities to make my girls horse dresses when they were in that phase, so it was so fun to make one for little Maddie!
I used Crafterhours Razorback dress pattern for it. Mom cut out and made a TON of these while I was at home and she convinced me that I would love it... I did. It's so easy and cute and I love that it's made from knit~ my favorite. The fabric is SO CUTE, right?! It's from my Mom's stash. She bought it at JoAnn's and I want it every time I go home.
The applique on the front is from Designs by Juju's Cute Animal Faces set 1. I love these sets!
I was excited to finally use my horse snap clip design, too, from Digistiches. Don't they go perfectly together?! Maddie didn't really care for the bows, but I thought they were awesome.
She liked the dress, though, and it fit! So I was very pleased. I think it will be cute with leggings and a shirt underneath for warmer weather, too.
Sophie got into the modeling with us, too. Isn't she darling?!
She's wearing one of my sister's everyday princess dresses.
