My little girl is officially 13 years old.
|don't adjust your screen, the cake is in fact leaning!lol|
We had an impromptu celebration at the house with hot dogs followed by cake and ice cream. The cake was inspired by a pin that has been making the rounds. No by scratch baking here...it was all from a box with a little food coloring thrown in.
K did get one present that was homemade...a summer pajama set.

The tank top is a pink jersey (leftovers from BK's Badminton Skort). I didn't realize that I wouldn't have enough fabric until I had already cut out the back. So, I improvised and pieced the front together using a flatlock stitch. I also eliminated the gores that are on the original pattern. This is the same pattern (altered) that I used for the top of K's OBX dress. One last addition is the ribbing at the hem.
The shorts are the Darla pajama pants pattern. I made them shorts length and used a facing for the inner waistband instead of folding the top of the shorts/pants over to make a casing. This gave them a little more depth to the crotch which I feel runs short in this pattern. I used a Little Lisette poplin.
The pajamas fit! And were well received.:)
Happy 13th Birthday, K!
