A finish: dress for my girly

When you marry a guy who is 6'2", you might end up with tall kids.

And that's what I'm getting! My oldest girl, who is almost 11, is a long drink of water, and we have a heck of a time finding age appropriate dresses for her to wear to church. Not going to dress my girl like a 16-year-old, thank you much. And don't get me started on how those 16-year-olds are dressing.

So we go to the fabric store. She chose aqua for her color, and we made a dress for her. Kind of mod-style, but she loves it and that's what works.

Checking it off the 3QFAL list. Kicking tail and taking names!


  1. Lovely dress! I love the aqua color and the way it is color blocked.

    I have the same problem with my daughter and I refuse to relent to the clothing that is out there that is considered "age appropriate" for her. Nonsense. So I make or modify as well.

  2. Love love the dress. Very smart. I am so with you on what girls are wearing. Far out!!!!

  3. What pattern did you use as I love it?
