Pretty In Pink

I picked up a pretty pink dress at an end-o-season sale last year for my daughter, in case we had any formal events this summer. No weddings and no graduations are on our radar, so something had to be done. Since I couldn't pep up my social life, I decided to shorten the skirt so that my daughter could actually wear this out in public, without needing attendants. I didn't want to mess up the pretty applique on the front (or make a hem with this slippery fabric), so I lopped off 6 1/2 inches of the waist. I reattached the lining and replaced the waist elastic.



I was looking at the top chunk of skirt that was looking back at me and I remembered the recent Whip Up post I had just read. And voila! I made a matching purse. I used the top hem from the waist and added a few darts, seamed the cut bottom, and added ribon, flowers, and a button. Wish there was enough left for a mommy version!




My daughter is so tickled be able to wear her dress and loves the matching purse, and that makes the whole endeavor so much more fun. She immediately filled it with "married buttons" (I'm not asking) and claimed that she was NOT going to let her friends see it. Oh, to be 5 again!
