I recently took Ethan shoe shopping for new tennis shoes and while we were at the store we found a cute pair of shoes for Madelyn too. They were discounted quite a bit, so we couldn't resist buying them for her birthday. I took a guess on her shoe size and luckily it turned out to be right.
After getting the shoes home, I decided that I really needed to make a dress to go with the shoes. After all what would she wear them with?
I found a cute dress pattern from Butterick, #4434, and decided that I wanted the fabric to be eyelet, and that I would tie in the silver from the shoes with a silver satin bow around the waist. I was really excited when I found a white eyelet fabric that had silver sequins. I love it when I have something pictured in mind and it comes together so easily.
