Some days it's all about the DRESS...

Cracker...."wouldn't this material make a pretty dress?"..


That's all it took for me....


my girl wanted a new dress.


We were ooh-ing and ahh-ing over all the lovely fabrics at our local quilt shop when this one struck her fancy.


When your six...you have definate opinions about what's cool and what's NOT.


This fabric...VERY COOL...









Remember when you were six?

























A sewing Saturday...

a privilage.

  4. One of the things I miss MOST about my girl growing up is sewing for her. She never had a bought dress until she was 12. This brought back sweet memories for me today.

    GORGEOUS DRESS!

  21. How sweet! The dress turned out so cute! The little one wearing it is quite a cutie also! Oh no, you can't forget the lip gloss! I use to sew for my girls alot when they were little, even made western shirt for my boys at times. Have done a little for the gandies, but not much. Fond memories though. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Love your header!

  29. I love the dress! It is so cute. My daughter was like that...she would see fabric and say...momma I want a dress or whatever out of this. I loved sewing for her. I even smocked and did french hand sewing back in the day. She had the cutest clothes. I miss those days.
