Here are my girls with the Izzy & Ivy gals before the fashion show.
I lived up to my own expectations and was able to completely finish the Stella Dress (view B) during the alloted class time on Saturday. Look at the awesome goodies each participant got! We all got two patterns, the sun hat and the pajamas, Sprinkles labels were included, as well as a handmade magnetic ring to keep our pins on before they make it back to the pin cushion. (There was Dove chocolate too!)
I learned to use a rolled-hem foot, which I have for my machine at home and now will actually USE it. I got to use a ruffler which is AHHHHmazing and has totally ruined me for ever doing it the "old fashioned" way again.
As soon as I got home, I put it on Eden and, it was already beautiful, but she just made it sparkle. We went to a local festival that night, Bright Lights, Belhaven Nights, so she had a chance to really show it off while she had some fun.
She got to look on the inside of a pediatric ambulance. There were free leis, beach balls, tattoos and balloon animals.
The line for the balloon clown was very, very long and she got a little droopy waiting in it.
She had to stand and stand. So I took the opportunity to take a detail shot. :)
Then we moved on to more exciting things. Never too dressy to hold a reptile. She was a brave one!
Eden and her dress got no less than 12 verbal compliments and many more admiring glances. It was a pretty swell way to spend my weekend.
