Emma's new dress!

To start off- my daughter is tall and skinny. Buying clothes can be a bit of a trial, but it is working out fine except for in the dress department. Everything is tooooooooo short and if we buy a bigger size than the neck is too low. So I decided to get my sewing machine out and make her a dress. Not out of my curtains! (I want her to actually wear it) We went to the store and I let her pick out the pattern and the material then at home I let her help in little ways with the dress. I got stuck at the zipper and had my highly resourceful friend Denise Steinert come over and help me- thank you, thank you! Anyways here is the final result, she loves it and did wear it to church. (As a matter of fact Sean loved it to and threw a huge fit because he wanted it. So we let him run around in the dress until his dad threw a bigger fit and we took it off- but it was a good chuckle.)
