The Well-Dressed Five-Year-Old
I have a little girl's dress pattern that I love, and it only goes up to size 5. Guess what size Caroline is this summer? Yup. So it's my last chance to make this dress for her. I made her two or three of them last summer, when she was a 4, and I understand that she wore them a lot.
So yesterday I got this one made (didn't realize my shoes were in the photo). When Sherry phoned to say that she and Caroline were having a Girls' Day and would I care to join them for dinner, I quickly gave the dress a final pressing so I could give it to Caroline to take home.
We went to the newish Italian place down where Rizzo's used to be (nod to Marsha here), and while Caroline downed bread and spaghetti and meatballs, Sherry and I enjoyed paninis. Claiming to be too full for dessert, we headed back to my house where Caroline really liked her finished dress, and really liked this second one that was nearly finished, and really liked the chocolate moose tracks frozen yogurt that we found in my freezer.
I got out a couple of patterns and a couple of pieces of fabric and we had a bit of a consultation on where to go from here.
Next up, I think, is the nightgown pattern. And then perhaps another pinafore dress. Or two.
Such fun . . . .
