Birthdays. I love birthdays. I love birthday parties and birthday cake. Especially when the party is for a child and there will be the best home-made birthday cake ever, made by their mother.
Which is one reason I'm so sad that we had to miss a little sweetie-pie's birthday party today celebrating her third birthday. We can thank one of our cars since it started making scary noises the other day and today was the only chance we had to get it into service to be looked at.
So I won't know until we see them tonight if the little sweetie will like her new wraparound dress or not. I betting Mom will like it even if the little one gravitates towards the toy that will also be in the birthday bag.
The dress was sewn using a vintage 1970s pattern I picked up the other day at a thrift store. You know, there was a time not so long ago that I would rarely see sewing patterns in thrift stores. Now, almost every one I stop at as a rather large selection of sewing patterns for sale.
I know there are many adorable designs to choose from in the current pattern catalogs, but c'mon...look at this. It's a WRAP DRESS! For a toddler. With a bias ruffle sleeves and wide ties that end in a big bow in the back.
Sewn from a brightly colored cotton print I think it makes an adorable addition to any toddler's closet.
