Here is my first attempt, made from some of Moda's Hello Betty fabric that I scored from a friend of mine who was destashing. At first, I rolled the hem of the ruffle in black - I don't know what I was thinking! It looked terrible! So, I quickly fixed that by adding the yellow velvet ric rac - much better. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough of the fabric to make another one for Cobblestone Park.

That one came together so easily, that I decided to whip out another. This one took a little bit longer due to that embroidery. 27 color changes and about 30,000 stitches. Ugh! My heart kind of sank when I saw that, but I was determined to use it, as I already had chosen the matching sewing tape for this shirt and would not be talked out of it! Besides, it's freakin' adorable. This one is listed as a custom on Cobblestone Park.

In other news, my friend's adorable little girl turned 3 over the weekend, so I made her this dress:
Pattern: Portabello Pixies Claire
Embroidery: None. GASP!
