rainbow birthday dresses

Birthday girls deserve special birthday outfits, don't you think?

Both dresses were made using Lil Blue Boo's Sienna Dress pattern.   Ruby's dress goes red to purple:
 and Violet's dress goes purple to red:

The fabric for the dresses came from t-shirts, and the number is appliqued.  I divided the skirt pattern piece into 4 to make the stripes and didn't add extra seam allowance (dumb, dumb, dumb), so the dresses came out a little short.  Nothing leggings or bloomers can't fix!

We are partying this weekend, so I'll have more to share next week of everything put together.  Hope you are not too sick of rainbows yet.  :)

I'm such a nerd. I just realized why the party is rainbow themed.

Wow. It's been a slow summer :)

You have impeccable sewing skills, by the way.

I LOVE these dresses. How adorable! Whoah, just got the name/party theme relation as well. Feeling quite slow ;)

Um...wow. I'm kind of wishing my daughter wasn't stuck on Hello Kitty for her party next month. But she decided the day after her 4th birthday and she's still set 11 months later, so I probably should avoid the urge to be controlling and completely copy you. :)

I might have to give the Jello cups a try, though!
