I am definitely going to be sad when I pack this dress up to be sent off. It is one of my favorites. I'd say packing the Trainstop Shirtdress was difficult but this one is going to be just as painful if not moreso. I think it's partly because I almost wish I had one in my size. If I had made a mother/daughter ensemble I'm sort of wishing this had been it. Que Sera.
I used a green broadcloth material with a crochet trim that runs throughout the dress. The green and crochet together reminded me of a garden. The dress itself looks like something one might wear to a garden party. It's just fancy enough to be something *not* worn everyday.
As for Lily, she enjoyed running at top speed through the rose bushes. She fell over a couple times and I had to kiss the booboos on her knees but otherwise, things were copacetic.
It fits Lily to a tee! So if you have a daughter who has no more than a 21.5 waist, it should be fine.
AND, if the winning post also leaves a comment I will include the matching double banded hair band.
Thanks to everyone who gave me some spandex advice! I had never heard of a stretch needle before so the next time I take on another spandex snafu I will look into it. I'm pretty excited to see how it works so I might just be inspired to give it another go. *Might*
