First Birthday

Today is my granddaughter's first birthday! Wow, time has flown by!

Instead of my desire to make a frothy 1st Birthday dress, I toned it down to something she would really wear more then once.

This is a size 1 Children's Corner Mary Dee. The fabric has been in my stash for years waiting for the perfect "Let's Party" dress. The dress is piped in royal blue. I love this pattern and have used it numerous times.

Here is the back view. I used slightly larger buttons ( This is based on my experience of getting this style of dress off my daughter when she was one). The yoke of the dress has been lengthened by 1/2 inch to accommodate a long torso granddaughter.

She wore her balloon dress to open presents and play. She then had a costume change before she got to eat/wear her cake! :-)

Happy Birthday Cupcake!
