Birthday Outfit

Unfortunately the way things worked out, Grace's birthday outfit wasn't even started until late last night around 10 p.m.  That means that I needed something quick and easy.  Annee, bless her heart for having to move from Korea to North Carolina so she's been absent for a little bit from MOM, made Grace a tiered skirt almost 2 years ago and Grace loves it and still wears it.  So I took the skirt Annee made, took the measurements of each tier, and made this:

Sadly, Grace's birthday shirt fell short in my opinion.

It's supposed to be a cake on a cake stand, and on the cake there is a number 4 for Grace's 4th birthday.  If I fix this shirt or use this design again, I must use a more contrasting color for the 4.  It just blends into the cake too much in my opinion.  I would have changed it last night, but I started the birthday shirt around 12:30 a.m. and there was no time to fix anything!

Please don't worry too much that people might have been confused her shirt.  The birthday crown I started at 1:30 a.m. clearly shows what birthday Grace celebrated today.

This is the best picture of Grace I could get with her in her birthday outfit.  I had 4 hours of sleep last night, so I apologize for the poor quality.  It was taken 5 hours after I had laid myself down to bed, and sadly I was awake and kind of wishing I wasn't!

Don't go feeling sorry for me at all, but don't expect any creations from my sewing room tonight!! It's 9 p.m., and I'm barely keeping my eyes open!!

Good night!

Your four hours of sleep are making me tired! Her birthday turned out so darling. I can't believe she's four. I'm so glad you bought that pear fabric in the end. That was a treasure to find. I love it all.

I'm trying, ever so hard to come back!! I feel like it's imminent, and yet another day just went by without a creation. I did however pick up my machine from the shop today!! That's a big step in the right direction...

I thought the b-day outfit was even more adorable in person than in your pictures on here. The shirt looked great! You are super mom!
