Or 'Day 1' show and tell :) Hazel was so pleased with it that she was determined to accessorise which she hardly ever does, so she included the head band and necklace. And the goofy expressions. "No, not a smile like that, just a normal smile" I pleaded. She did try. I love how the little ruffles peek out at the sides.
Here she is doing her best curtsey princess-style
And her patented shake-yer-booty "bum dance", which this skirt does lend itself to!
I'm surprised how much I like this skirt because it's really not my style at all. I was apprensive choosing the fabrics, and had to constantly fight my tendency to tone it down in some way. I totally splashed out with the purple trim, so not me! :)) But seeing it on her, and seeing how much she loves it really brings home to me that I'm sewing for HER, not me. I need to suck it up sometimes and try and make something we can both enjoy, even if it means I'm out of my comfort zone sometimes.
