She Really Likes It

For the past few weeks, months (it seems like years), we have been so busy with rehearsals for River’s and Lily’s stage debuts and the Christmas concert performance in which all three children performed. Canyon actually sang this time. I asked him before he went on stage to sing for mommy. He promised.

I wasn’t really sure how this would turn out. The pattern was simple enough. A little too simple for me, but I knew I didn’t have much time and when that happens, simple is the best route to take. Of course, I never do things as I should and somewhere along the way I decided that the dress needed a little bit more of something. I decided to cover the buttons. That still didn’t seem to be enough. With that, I rummaged through my bags and boxes of laces and other trims and all I could find was this piping…

and this lace.

Lily wore her dress two days in a row. She wore it the night of the Christmas concert and then the day after that for nothing in particular other than just because. She also wore it when we went to see The Nutcracker last week. I think she really likes her dress.

All performances may be over for this year, but as you can see, the drama never ends.

    Oh,my goodness, you are so talented and that dress is gorgeous. I would have wore it two days in a row too…lol!!!

    Yvonne,

    Thanks for the compliment. The dress actually turned out better than I imagined. I wasn’t sure about the black trim and lace, but I wanted something decorative and that is all I had. I like the basic pattern and will definitely make Lily more dresses using it.
