Last weekend we had little miss T’s birthday party (pictures of that still to come). Remember how we took her to The Princess and the Frog (thanks again for all the toddler/movie going tips). She adored it. Before the movie she was all “I’m princess ‘no white'” and after it it was still Snow White some but also “princess T’nana”. So I knew exactly what to make her for her birthday. It’s a Princess Tiana dress. At first I was worried she’d think it was Tinkerbell but I really like how it turned out after the addition of the flower and the vine sash!
Regardless of what I think she LOVED it. Besides saying “I love it” and “it’s my favorite” and “so beautiful” over and over she put it on immediately and started twirling (it’s a circle skirt :) ). Oh and I was besides myself with happiness when the day before the party I found that adorable felt frog bucket at World Market, so much better that the rubber frog I was looking for. (It was by all the Easter stuff too cool!)
UPDATE: I’ll be sewing a new one live today (1/23/2017) on FB I hope you’ll join me. I’ll make sure to add a full written and video tutorial after I make the new one so be sure to check back!
