I have two identical dresses cut from some gorgeous blue and pink Jennifer Paganelli fabric that I was planning to sew up to dress my girl's identically for church and lunch with the family on the 16th.
I never got inspired to sew them, though. I wanted to do some embroidery on them and just couldn't get a vision in my head.
So, this is what my 6-year-old wore instead.
It's an Old Navy white shirt that I cut off the bottom of and added this remnant of oh-so-soft watercolor knit I found fabric shopping in DC last year.
I have to be totally honest with you. The whole reason I cut off the bottom of the shirt is because I embroidered a bird on it, but it was sideways. I hadn't used the pattern before and didn't know which direction it would face in the hoop. I guessed wrong, so I had to cut the bottom off, cut the bird out and sew it somewhere else.
It ended up on the sleeve and, thankfully, this was a happy accident with a lovely ending.
