T-Shirt Dresses

I made these T-Shirt dresses and 18 inch doll dresses for two sweet birthday girls, 7 year old Maegan and 6 year old Maddie.
Was inspired by Patricia Dunn's Blog, My Patchwork Quilt, which had a very nice tutorial. The measurement charts at Adrianna and Susan's blog, Crafterhours were very helpful.

I made two little 18 inch doll dresses from a free pattern found at Oliver + s

Made fabric flowers with scraps and attached them  to the upper left on the T-shirt dress.

The birthday party tomorrow has a beach theme. So I quickly made up these cards which kind of match the dress colors.
Stamps:  Michael Strong's Seaweed and fish stamps and Stampendousfor the Happy Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! and Distress ink (black)
