Playing dress up

My mom said that when I was a little girl I would change my outfit at least 4 times a day.  I was definitely a girlie girl.  We would go to the mall every weekend and I would always come home with something new.  Whenever I got a new pair of shoes, I would slip them on as soon as I got into the car and wear them on the ride home.  I think all little girls love playing dress up and because I loved playing dress up so much when I was a little girl, I thought it would be such a fabulous idea to give that as a gift to my friend Wendy's daughter, Kamoana.  She recently turned 4 and what better way to celebrate with fun outfits to play dress up with!! 

So, about a week ago I began sewing.  I made quite a few outfits -- party dresses, skirts, a divalicious dress, princess gown, tutu, nurse outfit, and even a wedding dress.  My hubby's contribution to her gift was getting a couple pair of dress up heels and he made her a wardrobe trunk.  It was quite sweet.  Today was her birthday party and when she opened up her trunk, her eyes lit up. She was so excited!!  The excitment was heightened when she saw the heels!!! She immediately put them on and that image of her doing so brought back such fun memories.  I will be posting pictures of the outfits soon. :)

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

Love, S
