FIRST BIRTHDAY: Isabellas Outfits...yes there were two of them!

For Isabella's first birthday I had been searching for her birthday outfits. Yes...outfits, because if you can't wear two outfits on your first birthday then when can you? I really wanted an outfit that showed Isabella was turning 1 and a 'party' outfit for when her birthday party began in the afternoon. 

Outfit 1
Pink Long-Sleeved Top - Next - £3
Personalised with a 1 in material from Tiger

As a complete sewing novice I had a go at making Isabella a '1' top, you can find my very simple tutorial is here. The tutorial could easily be adapted to any number or letter, a fun way of personalising your child's clothes. The 'I am 1' leggings from Little Chickie are such a perfect accompaniment to my handmade top and it was so cute seeing Isabella crawling around in them on her birthday morning! 

Outfit 2

Navy tights - Primark - part of a set

Navy bolaro cardigan - J by Jasper Conran at Debenhams - similar here 

As the theme for Isabella's birthday party was 'floral' her party dress had to be a floral number. I searched for such a long time - ordering dresses online, only to send them back for not being quite right. A lot of our partyware had the Liberty Betsy print on, so I wanted to somehow feature that print within Isabella's outfit. Just to kind of bring everything together, without being too obvious. I found this Liberty Betsy bib via the LittleRedFoxy Instagram account and fell in love. It also changed the colours I was looking for in the dress, I now wanted to look for blues more than typically pink floral patterns. Though this dress probably isn't the perfect match to the dress I'm really happy with how the colours coordinate. By having the navy bolaro cardigan it broke up the two floral patterns of the bib and dress, which hopefully made the outfit not look too busy.

Where's your favourite place to shop for children's party clothes?
