Winter Wonderland week of Project Run and coincides with Boston's 2nd Birthday.
This last Saturday was Boston's 2nd Birthday; a few days before it I was switching out small clothes with larger clothes and at the bottom of the box was both kids "Home from the Hospital" clothes. I went into mommy shock. I looked at Boston as she held her new baby doll and realized she was holding a doll that was nearly the same size as her when she was born. How did that happen?
Cupcake Top from Sewing Mama Raeanna (I used 2T width and 3T length on sleeves & bodice), instead of using the neckline on the pattern I used the existing neckline on the sweater and omitted the ribbing step.

Removeable Peter Pan Collar
The peter pan collar was franken-drafted using the neckline as a
guide I placed my finished shirt on a piece of paper and then poked
holes through the paper at the neckline. Then using the round shape from collar pattern
pieces from the Clever Charlotte, Chickadee Blouse and Skirt, I fiddled with it till I was satisfied with the pieces. I know that you could draw your own curve line if you don't have this pattern. Then I added on my seam allowance. For assembly I put together the right then the left side at the shoulder seam.
Cupcake Tops because this pattern is awesome). The fabric is left over scraps from my Penelope Peplum.
Ruffled Lace Flower
The lace flower was quick addition to the look and took just a few
minutes to make. This has the versatility of being worn on the pixie hat
or on its own. It couldn't be more perfect for the little gal that
loves to accessorize. If you want to make your own I have included a

Most of these pictures I wanted to have a touch more whimsy in the coloring so I used the Vanilla Latte and Vintage Blush Actions from The CoffeeShopBlog. I didn't use them in full force or they would have overwhelmed the pictures but I do like the coloring it gives.
The gold coat was handme down from Ty and was store bought.
