The Birthday Outfit

For Harper's birthday I decided to make her a special outfit. I love the apron skirts I have seen on Etsy so I started with one of those. I picked up the brown floral fabric in the remnants bin at Joann's so I worked around it. Then I made the crown using the stiff eco-fi felt. Thanks Christina for the inspiration on the crowns. My plan was to buy a pink tank top and embellish it. I just couldn't find one that I thought would work so I decided to make a top, which she ultimately liked better than the skirt. In hindsight I would have just made the top and paired it with some pink shorts and been done. Overall I was really happy how it turned out. Harper loved the crown especially and wore it before and after school all week.

Darling! What a sweet outfit, I love pink/brown together.

That crown is adorable. I wonder if I could make one for my little guy that is manly?

His b-day is coming up in Aug...What do you think?
