What She Wore To The Party
Of course Emma also needed a special dress for the birthday party. Lucky for her I had started a new bishop dress before she moved here! :)
I seem to be having a love affair with turquoise gingham these days. Emma has two dresses out of the same fabric right now. A little weird, but it is a good color on her.
The smocking design is "Babies Ahoy" by Kathy Crisp Designs. I love how the bright pink flamingos show up on the fabric. A great design when you want a little smocking.
Bright pink rickrack brought the pink color down to the sleeves. * A little sewing tip: I picked out the rickrack first then matched the floss color for the flamingos. Think of it this way, there are only a few shades of pink rickrack on the market while there are many shades of pink floss.
