One More Birthday Post; The Special Handmade Gift

One day I was bopping around the blog world-and happened upon this post, Mama Made A Dress,  by Lisa at Books. List. Life.  Have you ever been to Books. Lists. Life.? If not, do stop over she writes about her adorable kids, her books, and her craftiness! Love reading about her life.  When I looked at the special pinafore dress she made for the Princess-I left a comment expressing the thought that my Groovy Girl would look great in a bigger size dress and well, as things happen in the blogging world, a conversation started up and a deal was made and a dress created and sent to my Iowa address.

It arrived months ago but I had to wait until September to present it to her.  Lisa sent it in a lovely handmade drawstring bag so it was already "wrapped" and ready at her birthday breakfast.  She choose to open it that morning and heavens...she loved it.  Also Lisa shows a great close-up picture of the pinafore dress in this post as well as a bunch of other sewing items.

P.S. If you look closely to the above photo you can see chocolate near the pocket...Groovy Girl alias Messy Tessy wore the dress for the cake eating portion of her birthday night because she was trying it on for her godmother and viola...it now has cake stain on it.  I'm going to have to wash it!

Thank you, Thank you, Lisa!  She loves it very much.
Here is the link to her Etsy shop so you can get one too!

Hey! that's me! I'm so glad she liked it. And I hope you'd have eventually washed it even without the chocolate.

Your daughter (and her dress) are adorable!
