To celebrate her first day and also to indulge her recent love of skirts and dresses, I made her a first-day-of-school dress. It's sweet calico I got from the creative reuse shop and a pattern from Mrs. R.
And because I wanted her to be free to somersault in all modesty, I made her bloomers, just using the shorts from the pattern and putting lace and elastic in the legs. They are great! So pretty and practical. I'm going to be making more if my girl keeps loving skirts. I put a little ribbon tag in the back of the bloomers.
And off we go, walking across town to her little preschool. She was so ready for this and had a really marvelous time.
