Even boys like to dress-up (aka Aleena's birthday present)

So my niece happened to be having a talking with her mom (Luke's sister Tanya) it seemed she is very much into dress-up. I toyed with the idea of getting dress-up shoes as she didn't have any...but like a good auntie decided to make something. Tanya said her favorite characters were Belle and Ariel...but she had a Little Mermaid Belle it was. As I was "researching" (aka internet surfing) my mind started to go wild with the possibilities and a simple dress-up turned into 2 full blown outfits with matching cloaks. These will go in the mail tomorrow and hopefully Miss Aleena likes them! I will say...I had SO much fun making these outfits and watching them come together exactly as I imagined in my!

Here is some proof that it doesn't matter the gender...boys like to dress-up!

Dress or no dress, boys will be boys (also the back of the dress)!
