    another dress for DGD

    I bought this pattern at a quilt shop after eyeing the dress already made there for a year. Here's the pattern I used also. Eiley is my little "dress girl" it's like pulling teeth to get her to wear shorts!

    Such a beautiful dress. I have to learn how to put zippers in. I would love to make a dress like that for my daughter. She's a bit of a tomboy but dresses up once in a while.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Let her were dresses as long as she will. My GD recently looked at my photo album showing her in little frilley dresses I made for her 30 yrs ago. Her remark was "No wonder I hate dresses if that is the way you dressed me"

    How precious! I'm so jealous. Both of my DGDs are tomboys. The 3 yo is definitely not a girly girl and the 15 yo only wants holey jeans and cute little tops. Oh for the good old days!

    I am so lucky. I get to see the before (fabric), the after (the finished product) and the cute little girl that has such a loving grandmother as we live only about 1 1/2 miles apart.

    Beautiful dress. I like your color combo much better than the pattern.
