Lucy's 1st Birthday - The Outfit

My baby girl is one! Tomorrow actually. We celebrated on Sunday with lots of family and friends, and Lucy was certainly the star of the show! I know all parents think their baby is the most gorgeous kid ever, but how can you disagree with this photo?

Of course...I had to make her a special outfit for the occasion!

I chose some beautiful fabric from the recent Verona range by Emily Taylor for Riley Blake. I wanted to steer away from traditional pinks and reds and I loved the bright coral colour (called rouge) in this collection.

Firstly, I made Lucy a ruffle skirt. I used the Layered Skirt tutorial by Dana from Made which was a brilliant and easy tutorial to follow. The sewing was made much quicker and my seams were much cleaner using my new overlocker! The specific fabrics used are Damask in Grey and Dots in Rouge.

I added in a little sash at the front because I wanted to add some more of the rouge fabric into the skirt.

To finish the outfit I made a simple fabric head band with a fabric yo-yo flower and cute button. I didn't want the outfit to be too over the top, so to keep it simple I teamed it with a simple white long sleeved onesie and tights.

She looked gorgeous and I was so thrilled with the result!

Happy birthday Lucy my precious girl!

My facebook friends have had a sneak peek already, but stay tuned, because the next post will be all about the birthday cake, and I think you'll love it.
