Yay!  I finally finished this cute little dress.  And, despite it taking forever (okay, about four days off and on but who's counting?) - this was an easy little project.  For me.  'Cuz I have a disorder called "Pattern Challenged".  That's right.  Look it up.

I was even so bold as to modify it... on my very own!  Yeah, I'm quite pleased with myself.  Ha!

But, the bestest part?  It actually fit my 4 year old daughter to a TEE!!!  She wears a 3T but really needs a 4T length so I have to adjust for her and I'm not great at doing it.  That's one of the things I loved about this little dress - with the elastic neckline, just slip it on and go!  It hangs loosely and is kind of twirly!

When I asked her to try it on, she actually had the nerve to kiss the apron.  With her little Spagettio lips.  Ack!  Thank goodness it was dried on already.  Whew, close call.  On second thought, I may not let her wear it.  Do I take that chance?  Eh, you know it.

Do you like my apron?  We took a road trip a few weeks back and I decided to stitch in the car.  Don't worry, my husband was driving - not me!  Anyway, I was just playing around and having fun.  Then it dawned on me that I really didn't have any fabric to match the colors or design of the stitching.  Huh.  Oh well.

Then, during my very necessary weekly trip to JoAnn's, I found the perfect set of fabric!  "Hallelujah!"  Don't you just love it when that happens?!!  I just feel so complete.  All is right in my little world!  I just added one last little touch and voila!  Done.

Thanks for stopping by while I gloat.  I appreciate it!  Have a great weekend!
