Abby was invited to a birthday party, so she chose a pillowcase top, denim purse, and book as her gift. Thankfully, the top and bag sewed up in about 2 hours total, so it was an easy job. I love the big bow on this dress, so I used this tutorial from NaNa Kid Boutique for the top. I had enough fabric to make a 2nd, shorter top that works as a mini-dress for Mally or top for Abby. She can be matchy-matchy with her friend :)
I found this tute for the bag. Cute and so easy! I was in a hurry to get Abby to the party, so I didn't get a pic of the bag, but the jeans had embroidery on the front and back pockets so I didn't need to add any detail.
