After much changing of her mind she settled on orange and I set to work.
I couldn't quite bring myself to make an entirely orange dress (I'm sorry Small Bean! Next year, I'll take you shopping and you can choose all the fabrics yourself, promise!), so I added a white lace overlay tot he skirt and a white satin sash and contrast band.
The buttons are clear plastic with a floral design on them, which I felt complemented the orange but weren't washed out by it.
Who doesn't need a froufrou party frock? Happy Birthday Small Bean!
