Abbie decided to have a Fashion Show in celebration of her 7th birthday. She began planning her party several months ago. She asked me to applique a shirt for her to wear. I let her look through my appliques, and she chose to have a purse on her shirt. She picked out zebra fabric for the design. And, of course, Hannah Kate needed a matching pillowcase dress to wear to the party!

The party began with hair and make-up appointments for Abbie and all of her girlfriends.Once all of the fashionistas were dressed to impress, they each took the runway and then posed for a picture. At this point, Hannah Kate lost interest, but she did stand with Abbie long enough for a picture. Sort of.And then it was time for Abbie to open her presents. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday, she told me a trampoline. Well, she had to settle for an LSU pillowcase dress sewn and monogrammed by yours truly. But I'm pretty sure she liked it.Happy birthday to you . . . Happy birthday DEAR ABBIE!And, yes, Mason was in attendance for the Fashion Show, but he and Braylon (Abbie's other boy cousin) stayed far away from the make-up and hairspray. I snapped this picture earlier in the day before we headed to the party. Is he not the most handsome little guy you've ever laid eyes on?!? He is just AWESOME!

Too cute! Love the bday party theme. And I think I need a longsleeve tee to match Miss Abbie's :) The dress and shirt were both adorable...looks like you are putting your machine/hobby to good use!
