Yellow Day

What is a mother to do on "Yellow Day"?  Especially when it is the kindergartner's birthday?

Make a dress of course!

I used a man's shirt (Dana has a great tutorial here) and elastic thread shirring and whipped it up the night before.

For the ties I used the sleeve seams for a deconstructed look.

It was so fun to do, and I was surprised at how quickly it came together.

Plus, it goes great with Made's Celebrate Yellow.

(After "color week" I was grounded from my sewing room--I went a little crazy with whipping up new outfits for each color--oops!)

Who grounded you, though? That's the real question. :)

Steve did. And the sad thing is, I didn't get back into my sewing room the rest of the month. Mean old Steve. :)
