My little girl finally completed kindergarten.
She has been eagerly waiting for this moment since the start of the school year: She would ask us almost every day how long would it take.
She’s a lovely (and utterly sweet) girl, but I don’t think patience is one of her virtues – she’s quite determined and competitive.
“Slow down, my love. Don’t grow up so fast …” you can hear me saying so often these days. Time really does fly (and I know I’m still not ready for it …)
Sewing-wise, I did made a new dress for the school celebration (how could I not?): Ottobre Little Roses dress pattern (nº 18 from issue 3/2012).
This dress has been on my sewing-list since this issue was published – it only took me 2 years to make it 🙂
Based on the dress name (little roses), I reckon a floral fabric would be quite appropriate.
The dress features a row of pintucks in the front and back and gathered sleeves. It is fully lined and it was quite a pleasure to sew (for some awkward reason, I do love to sew pintucks and a lined garment always make me happy).
Did she love it?
To be honest, I’m not quite sure.
I love the soft color palette (there’s a hint of mint in the mix, which is rather sweet) and I believe it was fit for (my) princess, but I can almost swear she would rather something sparking and bright (I know my girl).
Nevertheless, we both love the design – it was breezy and perfect for a hot summer day.
My only complain – it was already too short on her …
Obviously, she loved that as well 🙂
(and yes, I will be adding a few inches to the next version).
