Bid Item #11
Thalia said she would do the modeling for this because she loves Dr. Seuss. This sweet Dr. Seuss fabric shows a great many of the characters from the beloved books. Even the Grinch shares his smiling face and little Cindy Lou may be hiding somewhere. I paired the skirt with a pink print blouse and pink sandals. The cute hat is a headband with embroidered hat and ears from "The Cat in the Hat". I had purchased the headband for this outfit as well as the sandals and writing accessories. The little tablets look like a couple of the well loved books from Dr. Seuss. All seams are finished and there is velcro to close the blouse and skirt. Doll not included.
