Birthday Presents

Our good friends who live just up the street have a sweet little girl who had a birthday last week! She just loves Gracie...and exclusively calls her Baby Gracie, might I add. How cute is that? So of course Baby Gracie and I had to join in her celebration at her flower themed party. And of course I had to make her a custom dress for her gift!
 Her mom had commented on the the Candy Shoppe dress I had listed in my shoppe, so I decided to make Maryn a version of her own.
Of course, I decided this the morning of the party, which was at 11. AM. And I had to take Gracie to a doctors appointment that morning. So when we got home from the doctors, I put Gracie down for her nap, and somehow managed to crank this one out in just an hour! A little pressure never hurt anyone.
I love how fun & bright & summery it turned out. And of course...gotta love that seersucker! 
 Turquoise seersucker just might be my favorite so far.
 The bottom hem & ruffles are from a pink sparkly fabric. It's hard to tell in pictures, but the thread just sparkles in the sun! I'm pretty sure all little girls love at least a little sparkle.
I think Miss Maryn liked it too!
