It is time to bring in some spring clothing for the little ones. Let me start with a Reversible Dress. I have added pics for most of the steps to make this dress. I have used brown polka dots for one side and monkey print in green for the other side. I have also added a Ribbon along the front side of polka dot fabric.
Always make sure to press open all the seams to get the perfect finishing for any garment that you make

The dress is with Ruffles all around in both silk and tulle in each layer of Ruffle. IT has smoking on the back and I made a flower with the same fabric and attached it on to piece of tulle and then hand stitched it to the front of the dress.
The satin Ribbon Sash was the one that gives it the final touch. Here are some snaps of the dress from all views.
After attaching the First Ruffle Layer.. This layer is with out the tulle The next layer comes with the satin fabric and tulle ruffled and attached together. The tulle is placed below the satin fabric.
This dress can just be worn for wedding, baptism, or any other special occasion. If you would like to have custom made for you just visit my online store @http://www.etsy.com/listing/93706255/white-ruffle-dress-for-flower

Winnie the Pooh was her favorite toy most of the time. She calls it by "mimi". So thought will go ahead with Pooh theme for the party. We celebrated her birthday from our home with few families to join us in celebrate her birthday. It was her first birthday and I did not want her to loose any fun in it by bringing a lot of crowd.
I did have so many different designs in mind for her birthday dress. I made 3 special occasion dresses for her, 2 in pink and 1 in white. One dress was crocheted using Crocodile stitch and the other two was stitched. Finally decided to go with the white one as the party was in the late evening and white would be perfect at that time.
The goody bags for kids who came to celebrate the party was also made by me using pooh themed fabric that I got from Hobby Lobby. Also I made few headbands as gifts for all cute little girls who joined the party to add to their goody bag.
I bought the wall decals from Amazon @Pooh Wall Decal
Also Pooh themed Growth Chart too from Amazon @ POoh Growth Chart Wall Decal
I was planning to buy this from some time to decorate her room. IT look so good. I loved the Growth chart a lot. The other one is just ok.
The Birthday banner is from Hobby Lobby and I added Pooh Stickers on each letter to blend with the theme. The Bow is made by me using wired Ribbon From Hobby Lobby. I did make one more bow with unwired Ribbon. Wired Ribbon stay in shape the way you want while the other one just droop down if you don't hold it well and place it while decorating.
Then I decorated Foam sheet I bought here http://shop.hobbylobby.com/store/item.aspx?ItemId=160311 with some wordings and added 2 photos of my little one on to it with glitter glue.. Most of the decorations I selected for her party was not just for a day but things that can stay as her room decoration for the coming year.
This center piece was just arranged using most of the pooh themed toys already at home and I just put some chocolates into it and the helium balloons with Pooh and Piglet Figurine bought from party city @ Helium Balloon
Overall the birthday party was so much of fun for her with so many kids who came to celebrate her birthday.
