Not much to say about the skirt. Simple. Easy. FREE. Ok, except the zipper, but the fabric came from an old drape sample from FabMo. The fabric for the blouse was not a bad price either. Just $3/yard from Eddie's Quilting Bee. I loved the swiss dot texture. This was my first "blouse". I adapted a pattern I got to change the neckline and make it a tie front instead of a high collar. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Most button up blouses just don't fit me right. Its nice to have one that fits well!
Sorry the pictures are really noisy. I'll try and retake them when I have better lighting...maybe, its rather painful for me to "pose" for these things, so it just might be on a hanger.

Shortly after that you welcomed your little brother into the world. I'm sure now you can't remember your world without him. You became quick friends and you've always taken good care of him and been a HUGE helper for Mommy.
We learned a lot together when we moved and entered the "real" world just 1 year ago. I know it wasn't easy for you and you even broke your arm during the whole process (you are one tough cookie, I can't believe how brave and strong you were through that), but you learned courage. And, like always, supported us through it all.
You are strong, thoughtful, talented, smart, beautiful, fun, compassionate, elegant, silly, tender, feminine, brave and growing into a fine young woman already! Thank you for being our cheerleader, parent, teacher, savior, and friend. We love you! Happy Birthday Monkey/Slimmy/Elyette!
