Fall wardrobe for Gracie - completed!
Here is Gracie's Thanksgiving Day look...Ottobre shirt with Burda pants. I got the fabric for both of these at the Patsy Aiken outlet. I love that place!
How long has her hair gotten?? The pink pants are a nice basic.
While the purple top looks great with the pink pants, it really goes well with the Hello Kitty skirt. She just loves Hello Kitty.
I thought I had the owl dress done, but I decided it needed something and I went back and added the orange layer under the geometrically cut portion at the bottom. I think it gives it needed visual weight.
Gracie just can't stop with the cheerleader poses - lol. This outfit is from the 1/2008 Ottobre. (The tee is from Old Navy.)
I substituted snaps for buttons...set 11 sets of snaps for the whole outfit!
The vest is lined in a raspberry pink interlock.
Of course, the best part of this is that I can now sew for ME!!!
