A few weeks ago, Emily watched an Angelina Ballerina video, and she hasn't stopped dancing ever since.
The tutu is my own pattern. No pattern, really, just 4 yards of tulle, 1 yard of sparkly organza, and 1 yard of ribbon. The top is design #5 from the 03/2008 issue of Ottobre, and it's made from stretchy crushed panne fabric. I tell you, panne is not fun to sew. It slides around, it curls up, it doesn't like my serger. This simple top should have taken less than half an hour to sew, but it took much longer. :-(
I love watching my little ballerina at work. She's so intense, but so carefree when she flitters around. Ah, the life of a child....
