Making It With Allie - Picture Day

Hello friends!
Yesterday was Picture Day for Miss AuBrynne!
And had I not been an admitted fabric-hoarder, this post likely would have been a letter of complaint to the fabric manufacturers. You see I am more disappointed than usual at the lack of color and print fashion forwardness.  But, you see, I came home (after 2 long days of fabric store hunting) and got into my stash. And friends, I found a cute striped knit with pinks and oranges and reds and purples.
For the little girl who is loving Strawberry Shortcake right now, I thought this would be perfect.
So, I threw together this little asymmetric little play dress.

You know she had to add her own touch: A headband I made her recently for a BRACELET...

So, I get it finished, and the little thing says to me:
Are we finished? Cuz I'm not wearing this tomorrow...
I suppose I shouldn't be so stunned when she mirrors my sass.
But I AM!
She did decide it was cute enough to wear for pictures.
So, I guess I wont complain, for now.

 Now, it's time for the
Making It With Allie Party!
