So here is the "angel" who announced to the whole world that she was not wearing anything but dresses and skirts from now on! I asked her what would happen if they were all dirty, would she wear pants or shorts? Very nonchalantly she said "Nope! Guess I'll just have to be in my underwear!"
Atleast she has a plan. Not a very good one, but still a plan.
Later that night, I had to take her sister to Walmart cause she told me at 9:30 pm "oh yeah, I need the fabric for tomorrow to start my tie blanket project for Life Skills."
Thank you my darling daughter for the advance notice.
Anyways, I had to take the bitty one with us. If you didn't know, we are conjoined twins. Seems I can't go anywhere without her. Thank goodness she is starting preschool next year and I will get a few hours of not being bossed around by her. Maybe I should send her teacher a condolence basket now?
I don't care what store I go into. She has to find something that she CAN'T live without!
PUH-LEASE! Just this one thing mommy! She does a fine imitation of Steve Martin from "The Jerk".
All I need is this pencil....
Okay, back to the story that will eventually turn into a tutorial. Pinky swear! There among the fabrics she finds pink princess material. This kid lives for anything pink and princess. Sometimes it is easier to just give in early.
Which I did cause I knew if I didn't one of us was going to be laying on the floor, crying and having a temper tantrum. More than likely me.
So here is that damn material that she just HAD to have!
It's smocked on the top. This was just too easy. I measured around her chest because for some strange reason I do carry around a dressmakers measuring tape in my purse. I needed 20" to go around her.
Excuse me for a moment while I try to remember what it was like to have a 20" anything....
Back to reality....
Since I got a little bit extra, I lined up the top and bottom and cut off the excess. Lined everything up and pinned it. Whisked it off to the sewing machine for a seam.
You know what is the best about this fabric? Prehemmed!
She wanted ribbon straps. Of course she did. I bought a couple extra inches to make straps for it.
She wants something for her hair. It's on my to do list.
Ta daa! One happy little one in a pink princess dress that took 20 minutes to make and cost $6.00.
Don't you love how my kids give me their complete and total attention when I am trying to take a pic of them?!
Yeah honey, ignore the stupid lady behind the camera.
Anyways, about that title. I was supposed to post this for Jan @ Bobbypins Boardwalk's Bragfest.
I like to think though that I am well prepared for next week though!
