Sophie's first birthday keepsake!
Sophie is turning one today, and her mom who's an event planner is planning a big party for her!
Sophie's mom discovered Pokidots! just about 10 days ago, when we were still away for Leina's surgery, and asked for a keepsake for her daughter's first birthday in an urgent voice. How can I say no?
She expedited Sophie's cute little linen newborn dress while we were still away, and I worked on it as soon as we arrived and while Leina was recovery-napping!
I may have spent more time ironing these ruffles than on the keepsake itself! :) The result was lovely. Like I always say, I start with a general idea of what I want to do with the dress, but it guides me while I work, and sometimes the end result surprises even me. Woven clothes are always more challenging because of the lack of stretch and flexibility, but I make it work.
The keepsake arrived just a day before Sophie's first birthday party. I am so happy that her mom loved it. Here is what she said:
"[Sophie's keepsake] arrived... and WOW! Pure magic! Just wow... You are gifted! I cannot wait to show it off tomorrow :) Thank you, thank you."
