Baby B's First Birthday

Baby B. has two little friends who are 6 and 5 weeks older than she is, and so we decided to have a triple birthday party for the three babies. We split up the planning of the party and I, of course, was in charge of the outfits and the party favors.

This cute little guy is wearing an outfit made by me. I based the pants on a pair of white capri's that Baby B. owns and drafted my own pattern. The pants have a flat front with elastic in the back. The length is mid-calf and there are little pleated cargo pockets on the sides.

To complete the look, I bought a white polo shirt on clearance at Target, appliqued a number 1, and replaced the collar with one that was the same fabric as the pants. This is a great way to personalize as well as complete an outfit. You could also ad a little pocket to the shirt instead of the applique.

I made each of the babies their own bibs for the traditional eating of the cake. Baby B as you can see was not so happy about this part of the party.

The older sisters received matching outfits of their own. More Joy Ruffle Skirts.

Here is S. modeling the shirt portion of her outfit. The shirt was bought and the flower was made.

The sweet birthday girl in her birthday outfit. I appliqued a little cupcake on her shirt; a raw-edged applique with straight stitching. So simple and easy.
