Snow White

Those who have not given up hope of my ever updating my blog will be rewarded today with pictures of my newest project: a Snow White outfit for Olivia to wear to a friend's princess-and-superheroes-themed birthday party this weekend. I figured out the pattern myself based on pictures of Snow White, and I'm very happy with how it turned out, especially the sleeves. I tried to buy as little new stuff as possible to make it (figuring she'd only wear it once) while still making it a quality product - that meant that Snow White's collar is actually made of leftover satin from Summer's wedding dress. I was also really excited to have an excuse to use my new snap pliers that Steven got me for Christmas! The skirt is just short enough so that she can still crawl around easily, and she seems to be pretty comfortable in it.

The big question now is, what will I do with it after the party? Steven thinks I should sell it, but part of me wants to save it in case we have another baby girl who's around Olivia's size in a couple of Halloweens. Any suggestions?
