My daughter is moving from Toddler to Pre-K class on Monday. She is turning 3 next weekend. The Toddler class curriculum is no longer suitable to her age.
I have been telling her about this matter as soon as her teacher informed me about the transition a couple of weeks ago. She will miss her classmates for sure but I know she will get along well with the other kids in her new class. And it's another learning phase for her. I'm excited for my girl!
I wanted her to wear something pretty and new tomorrow. After all, everything tomorrow will be new for her. New room. New class. New faces. New teachers. You name it! I browsed through GAP's website for inspiration days ago and came across this Belted Floral Dress. I knew right away a look-alike of this is what my daughter is going to wear on Monday.
I shirred the skirt and added elastic at the waist.
I like this layered hem a lot! Oopppssss... I have to sew on my label of course!
It may look pretty (in my eyes) but there was a minor problem. I cut the neckline a couple of inches wider. The solution? Pleats!
I think the pleats at the center made the bodice look more interesting. And here is the final look of my GAP inspired dress. Total cost - 2 euros and tons of love!
I can't wait to take pictures of my daughter wearing this dress tomorrow.
Have a great Sunday!
