For those who don't know, this is what Doc looks like:
I happened to have all the material I needed on hand, so this cost me absolutely nothing to make! Fabric hoarding pays off, people! It took a few hours and was worth every minute to see her excitement. I've never actually constructed a bodice before, but it was really simple. Of course, choosing stripes for your first-ever bodice may not be the smartest idea, but I have enough sewing experience that I wasn't too worried, and the stripes are all lined up so it's all good!
I also added a little "band-aid" to the skirt of the dress, because it's fun. And cute.
And, as a little preview for what's to come at the actual party, here's Lex in some of the party favors we made for all the kids... it's going to be so fun!
