And I guess the love part is sort of true too...My little girl already wants to wear it with her messy hair and half the garden all over her. She will definitely have to take a bath before she gets anywhere near this dress.
Now I have one more of these to make for the younger daughter...hers will be the same pattern, but she chose purple fabric. Maybe this time it won't take quite as long to sew. And if I remember, I will post a picture of it too!!
