The Forever {to Make} Dress

I feel like I’ve been talking about this dress forever. When I looked back on previous posts in this section, then I realize that I have been talking about this dress forever. It could be because it seems like it took me forever to make.Well, I’m done. I finished it a while ago, but I never shared any pictures with you of Lily wearing her new dress. If you know Lily, then you know that it is quite difficult to have her just stand in one place (and be quiet). She has to either sing or dance.

Sometimes, it is both and she doesn’t just sing for you, but she sings for anyone within a three mile radius to hear. She is just that considerate.

Well, this dress made her want to just dance and dance she did.

I didn’t want her hair to be bare so I made her a matching head band to wear. It hasn’t spurred the crafty hair-bow making magic in me, but I’m sure I’ll make a few more hair accessories for her before she turns 18.

I love her in dresses and am going to have to get an earlier start for next spring and summer because it took me so long to make this one. Dance on Lily! Mommy will give you something to really dance about next year.

    Hahaha! The first pic is so solemn. And then she starts dancing. Too cute. You are quite talented. Makes me want to sew.
