Birthday outfit for a 9 year old

My girl turned 9 yesterday, and it was customary for me to make a new dress or outfit for them. This year I chose to do something a little “older”. She still likes to wear dresses, but I realized she is outgrowing most of my books :(

In the end I chose this – cape and camisole tunic outfit from the cover of this book below  that I can’t remember if I did a review on this book yet. But I bought it specifically for the cape on the front cover, so I better make it before she outgrows the sizes!

Front of outfit. Cape was made with nani IRO knit: peaceful cooling in AKUBI. The camisole was made of white swiss dot fabric.

Back view. I love the layers on the outfit.

One more shot of the outfit with the front button undone. I wish I took a picture of the back ribbon tie of the tunic (it’s a halter neck tie with long ribbon straps made of the same swiss dot fabric) but her hair was down and hiding it so I didn’t get a good shot.

It was a really sunny day as you can tell from the pic! We had a great birthday celebration :)
