Our four year old granddaughter came to visit and said that we needed to do a really important "job." She said, "Gran, follow me, please!" Hmmmmm where I have heard that before. . .except it was. . ."Girls, follow me, please!"
Off we went to the studio. Inside the door, she crooked her finger at me to come closer so I bent down and she whispered in my ear, "Sissy needs a dress too. Can we sew it NOW?"
So we did! She made it a little different from the dress she made for herself. I loved that she wanted to celebrate individuality. The pressing went faster this time.
There were less lines to remember and after a little over an hour. . .we had the tah dah moment. . .
Our four year old is so tickled to have made it on the sly. She plans to present it to her sister on June 4 so her sister will have a present to open during her birthday party. She also asked me if she could enter enter the dress in the county fair.
The judge wrote "What a wonderful gift! Keep on stitching!"
She told her mama that she is buying a Barbie with her winnings!
Sissy wore her dress on June 4th; but, didn't like the tie around the neck. At 2 1/2 years old, she KNOWS what she wants and has NO problem communicating that information to you.
So this week, we revamped the straps. Now there are two straps and they tie in the back.
It was a great week!
