This Lizzie McGuire pattern is OOP, but it's still cute, and Savannah picked it out, so we're going to go with it. She wants to do views C, D, and E which would be the orange dress, shrug and purse. Oh yes, she wants the purse, too. And the silk flower on the shrug. We're using a Hello Kitty print for the dress. It's pink with orange, yellow, green and white. I have a coordinating print for the shrug, but I'm afraid it might be a little bit busy, so we might make a quick run to Hancock's on Tuesday (her birthday) to pick out a solid or a more toned down print. We also need some lace for the skirt. I'm thinking white crocheted lace, but we'll just have to see what they have when we get there.
And since it's been so long since my last post, I'll leave you with another peek into Savannah's closet...
This is another Children's Corner Abbie. I absolutely fell in love with this fabric last year, not because of the print, but because of the colors. I love this bright orange against this incredible blue. This was one of my rare fabric purchases that got made up almost immediately (as opposed to marinating in my stash for a year or more.)
Of course, just because I like something, doesn't mean the Princess is going to like it. I think Savannah has worn this twice. She refuses to wear it because she "hates monkeys!" She calls it the monkey outfit and it doesn't matter what I say, she doesn't like it and doesn't want to wear it. I think the last time I made her wear it to school she cried. Oh well. I'll just wait for a little niece or a granddaughter to wear it. Hopefully they won't hate monkeys.
