Gift for Chickee

Chickee is way more picky about clothes than I thought she would be at age 6! I bought her this long-sleeve t-shirt from Target, but, she wouldn't wear it. So I asked her, "if I add a skirt to it, will you wear it?" She assured me she would and helped me go through my stash to find the color she wanted. So here is a photo of the prep for the skirt. I poke holes with a tapestry needle, (I just eyeball it), then I put stitch markers or seaming pins through the holes to keep them open. I put a row of stitches in with Red Heart LusterSheen. Then I'm going to make the skirt in Red Heart Super Saver. I have done this with her shirts in past, and the Red Heart just gets softer every time I wash it. She loves these dresses and actually wears them. I'll post a photo when it's finished.

Isn't it amazing how fashion conscience they can be?!?!? My little cherub informed me at age 2 "I can't wear that - its not cute!" Now at almost 4 I don't even try to pick out her outfits in the morning - I just hold my breath and hope they are weather appropriate. She gets dressed by herself and we all have a more pleasant morning. Of course you do often end up with tiaras in school photos - but hey, why not? Have a great day - can't wait to see the final product!

You are so creative. I just can't wait to see the finished product. I just know that she is going to love it. I can see her now modeling it for you while you take the pictures. :)
