Sweet 16 contest by Charla McCaw. Don't you just love the mix of fabrics and rickrack, and the applique just makes it all come together! Of course, the model is just as cute as she can be! This came from Charla:
Hi! This was the first outfit I'd ever made for my daughter & I found it surprisingly easy (which was good since I started making it 48 hours before the birthday party- LOL!)
I used the McKenna Pattern by Bonnie Blue Designs & since the birthday was in October, I made the ruffle pants from the Twirl Top and Pants Pattern designed by Susan Huberty for SewBaby.
I felt like I had a boutique looking outfit & the ability to say- "I made it for her myself!" My friends were so surprised and impressed. :) (So was I.)
