coming up

This Saturday is the party for my little Brave's 1st birthday! I can't believe she is already one... she seems to be so much more baby-ish than True did and maybe cause True was already walking before she turned 1.

I couldn't decide on a "theme," so we decided to go with something similar to what we did for True. Hence, it is B is for Brave...

Now, I wanted her to wear blue (you know it starts with a B) and so I tried making this dress...
I wasn't feeling the first one I made (it isn't done, but I didn't like it) and this is what happens sometimes because frankly, I don't know how to follow patterns all too well. So I try to make my own and sometimes it is just a bust! Like this time... I really liked the fabric though cause it is a vintage, linen napkin and I added some white linen ruffles. Maybe I will figure out something to do with it.

Then, I took out this vintage reproduction fabric I had (it too is blue) and started cutting out my pattern for a dress...
But once it was all cut, I decided I didn't like it anymore! Well, at least not for her birthday dress. So then I moved on...

I started another and by this time it is already 10:30 PM, but thankfully a little past midnight, I had the makings of what I wanted... and finally it is finished! Now, my little Bravey has her birthday dress (and it is blue)!

Next on the list:
-Make birthday cookies
-Make a slideshow
-Go grocery shopping

Really I am blessed that my mom is doing a lot, mostly everything, cause she is really good at throwing parties... she makes everything grand!
