Happy Pink Dress Wearer



Finished it up a bit after 2 PM yesterday. Given the taxi driving I did picking everyone up from work and school yesterday, that really was just in the nick of time.

But the Flute Player was extremely happy; and now she has a nice dress to wear also to the Father/Daughter banquet in April (Assuming, of course, that the spot she put on the front when she dropped her fork while she was eating her chocolate pie washes out ok).

And we've got a booked up morning...dunno if I'll even get the green silk cut out for the new choir top. I've decided to go with the simplest option; we'll see what happens when I get home this afternoon.

  2. Oh she is growing up so fast. This dress is so age appropriate and yet quite becoming that it makes a beautiful statement about a beautiful daughter. Bravo! Well done!
