Brighton's Birthday Outfit

It's still some time away, but with B's birthday falling a month after Mason's birth, I'm not sure I'd get around to making her something. So I've started early!

I've been working on so many things lately, but this is the only thing that's actually FINISHED and not a gift, so it's really the only thing I can share at the moment.
SOOOO long ago I saw this tutorial, and I went out and bought a quilt pack at Joann's to make it into a skirt for Brighton. So now I've finally gotten around to it. There's a few other fabric scraps that I added in too. I hemmed it A LOT so she should be able to fit in it for a long time, as long as she doesn't grow "out" too much.
I was going to applique a "2" on the shirt but decided to make something that she can wear for a while. I know, she'll be two for an entire year, but I'm not really excited about her wearing a "2" on her shirt forever. I saw this tutorial and thought it would be perfect to match her skirt!
Alright! One more thing to check off the list!
