Look who got all dressed up to hit the town with a very handsome man.
She and I had been talking about her Very Special Date for three days. By the time Daddy got home from work on Friday, she was very excited. Auntie Jessie and Mommy dressed her and got her ready, and Daddy escorted her out to Chili's and then to Riverlakes Church for their first Father-Daughter Dance. I cried.
This is more her picture-posing style. I love it!
Her dress is made with this pattern, using leftover fabric from past projects. It felt good to drag out my sewing machine and have a chance to be crafty. It has been awhile since I have gotten the chance. My distraction is quite welcome, though!
I narrowed the arms on this dress (the bell sleeves were quite pronounced on the last dress I made with this pattern) and switched out the obi for a narrow belt. The detail on the belt, as well as the matching bows, are made using this awesome tutorial by Suzanne. You have to bookmark her blog for her Tutorial Tuesdays!
