I was really excited to get started on this one for my niece who is about to have her 3rd birthday. She's also going to be the flower girl in my daughter's wedding and so I just had to make her something to help remember this day. And because she's a little dancer, I was in search of a ballerina pattern that could be made into a bride as well. I found Marie-Liis Lille's pattern and had to buy it. This is not a free pattern, but is worth every dime spent as the instructions and pattern are easy to follow.
I tweaked some things and made it my own. I made the clothes, shoes, and bows removable so that she could have different outfits. I also made her body and sleeves white so that they'd coordinate with the different outfits. The wedding shoes became little Mary Jane's. I'm fairly certain she is going to be loved by a special little girl. Can't wait to package her up and send her off!
