Happy Independence Day!
I made this dress two years ago. I took the pictures last March before she grew too big to wear it. As you can tell, she's barely squeezing into it as it is.here and here. Every year I have intentions of making her (and the boys) patriotic clothes for the holiday. And every June I think, Oh, July is a month away...I've got plenty of time. And then suddenly July 4th arrives and I've got nothing. I totally dropped the ball the last few years.
Well, I already have the fabric set aside for next year's Independence Day, but I'm having a hard time finding a pattern for a button-down/snap-down cowboy type shirt for my boys. Any ideas? Anybody?
I love, love, love the bib front. Afton did not. I love the self-made bias tape I used as piping around the edge of the bib. The combination of the bib and the high waistline (and the length of the skirt) on this dress totally makes her look about five years younger than she actually is. I think that could be one reason she didn't really like this dress. She hardly ever wore it so we gave it away to a friend.
And that is all I have to say about that. Except...go burro, go?
