What a blessing! It was SO COOL to see this come together. I gotta be honest though. I think I made it up as I went. I didnt measure anything, I kinda eye-balled it, and I don't even know if its technically put together right, but it sure looks cute on my sweetie! Ok, here's what I did:

  1. Rachel,
    You didn't tell the best part ~ that the material for the skirt came from the skirt you wore at your High School Graduation!!! I think you did a stellar job - I give you an A+. She looks adorable and she obviously likes it! The matching flower on the front of the jeans top is a daring touch too. Thanks for sharing. Make sure you send this link in an email to Grandma so she can see it!
