A gift for Livy

I started this sweater for Livy at the first of the summer thinking, I should be able to have it done by her birthday in September.  With the help of a long road trip in August I finished the sweater! I had some different colors of yarn that I thought coordinated well and started knitting.

I added the ribbons and polka dot buttons.

I looked all over for some red polka dot ribbon and finally found the perfect red.

I then decided that this sweater definitely needed a skirt to go with it.  Livy loves to wear dresses and skirts so the yellow flowered fabric matched perfectly with all of the colors that I had used.



This actually was the second skirt that I made because I was afraid that the first one would be too small.

So, I finished the first smaller skirt for her little sister, Sofia.

I added some more polka dots, this time in green. (Can you tell that I love polka dots?)



I packed up the sweater and skirts and off I went to visit the birthday girl!

This little girl loves birthdays!  It fit great!

Should have got a picture of both of them in their skirts.

She wore her birthday outfit all day.

Happy Birthday Livy girl!

So glad you are in my life!

Oh my gosh - the pair are BEAUTIFUL!! Seriously, each piece is fantastic in its own right, but the two together are just lovely. The only thing cuter is the model wearing them!
