Default Early Spring Dress

Our 8 yr. old grand daughter Cora asked me to make her a dress. So into the sewing room we go, she picks out a fabric. Then we are off to the dresser which holds my patterns.
After the dress is finished, I get to thinking.......a little girl needs a handbag, a new pair of shoes,a white sweater, some stockings and a headband and some jewelry. She loves to draw so I made the purse big enough for a small sketch pad.

I didn't take pictures of her shoes, tights and sweater separately. Her parents don't want her picture out on the internet. So I can't show her wearing her new outfit. So I had to cover her face.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Aw, she's so lucky! I remember a grandmother who spoiled me as well with handmade outfits - I'm sure she'll treasure the memory as well!

She picked out a very pretty fabric, and grandma made a very pretty outfit. Great work!
