Today was Miss L’s first day of ballet class. She’s actually in pre-ballet with three other girls under the age of five — one of whom is her best friend. They looked adorable in their little pink leotards, tights and ballet shoes, their hair pulled back like the big girls.

I couldn’t let the occasion pass without making a little something special, so I used the prettiest ballerina velour from Painting Red Rhinos to make this sweet skirt for her from the 01/04 Ottobre:

I’m going to cut out a matching jacket and I think I may have enough to make a pair of pants for her, too.

    Oh how cute! When I was little I wanted to take ballet classes. Now when Isabelle gets a little older she can take them!
