Firework Shirt and Dress

Here is the Princess (youngest) and the Penguin (oldest) wearing their matching firework ensembles. I started with 1.5 yards of fireworks fabric that was given to me. I finished the dress first, realizing I didn't have enough for the second dress. Aaaaaahhhh! As a mother of two, I never make for one and not the other. On July 3rd, I was panicking, what should I do?? No time to buy more fabric.
So I took what I had and looked for anything that matched. I found this cute dress, size 2T. 
Princess and the Penguin could not wear it any more, so I cut the skirt off and set to work.
 I think all in all everything turned out ok. I hated cutting up this adorable dress but at least I have pictures and I was able to give both girls a fun outfit to wear on the 4th!
Whew! 
I hope everyone has a terrific 4th of July! We enjoyed being with family and watching beautiful fireworks!
