First Day of Pre-K Outfits

Today was my girls’ first day of Pre-K. I really wanted to get a cute shot of them on the way out the door but for the first time in forever, it was actually raining. The lighting inside my home is terrible, especially when it’s dreary outside, so this was the best shot I could get.

Luckily when the girls came home, they didn’t have lunch or paint all over them, so when there was a break in the rain, I took them outside to get some more shots.

The pants are Foo Foo Threads Triple Ruffle Capris. You may recognize them. It is the same pattern I used for my gnome pants in this post.

I actually made them a few months ago and bought the pink shirts at Target to go with them. I never posted about them before because I always thought the outfit was still missing something.

I thought an applique on the shirt would probably help. I had been eyeing Hang To Dry’s Scalloped Circular Monogram and decided it would be perfect!

Unfortunately, I did the one thing you should never do when using an embroidery machine. I looked away. It was only for a moment but the needle caught the bottom of the shirt and ripped a hole in it.

I wasn’t quite sure what to do about it at first. Then, I remembered seeing several photos of little purses sewn onto children’s clothes. I did a quick search and found this free tutorial and pattern over at Welcome to the Mouse House and got to work. They covered the hole perfectly and I think it was a pretty cute addition to the outfit!

I just love these pants and so do my girls. They are like having six tiny little twirly skirts on your legs. So much fun!

  1. Whoops,
    Cousin Esme. We just came in from sitting out back and having a glass of wine. Beautiful night here and the day was not too hot either. I kept my studio doors open all day.

  2. These are great outfits and thank you for admitting the hole and finding a creative way to fix it. I don’t know if I would have thought of that. Erin
