One of Miss L’s favorite friends from preschool just turned three and celebrated with a party yesterday. Great fun for her and nice mommy bonding time for me.

I had actually planned her friend’s birthday present for a few months but kept putting off sewing it until … yesterday morning. Yeah, I’m a procrastinator of the highest degree. Oh, but it was worth it when I finished.

The off-white fabric is a Japanese import featuring the characters Snow White & Rose Red. I actually bought the fabric because it reminded me so much of Miss L and her friend (one blond, one brunette). The red has small white dots; I picked it up at Joann’s. The accent fabric is Michael Miller’s Dumb Dot in turquoise.

I know I always so that I’m in love with an outfit and this one is no different. I have not yet sewn the one for my daughter and will make it just a little different — but not too much. I really like how this one turned out and I think it will look so sweet on my little girl, too.
