The kids have been invited to a birthday party this weekend for one of the girls that shares our childminder. The birthday girl in question is The Girliest Girl on the Planet *TM, so my normal birthday fare of a Kitschy Coo t-shirt or two does not apply. By rights, I should have made her a hair shirt as penance for being responsible for Maia's entrance into Princess Phase One.
But how could I resist the temptation to use one of my splendid new fabrics? I returned to my erstwhile bubble skirt pattern but made an extra gathering step for the requisite Authentic Princess Poofiness.
The underside of the skirt is a coordinating fabric I've had in my stash for awhile. I suspect this skirt will precipitate Princess Phase Two.
