She is 10 old has grown out of everything in the summer drawer!!When we get a summer that is,so I raided my fabric shelves and found some rems too small for me and showed her a few months ago and she said "yuk".As summer is now supposedly here I showed her the same lot of rems last week and she loved them!!!Kids are so fickle.So got to work today.

Wow, what beautiful dresses.

I must admit that as a little girl I never appreciated all the work my mum put into making dresses for me and my sister.
I was a horrible pain in the bum when I had to stand still on the dining room table so that my mum could 'pin up' the dress. I would fidget and fuss because I wanted to be out playing and my poor mother would end up stressed about a wonky hem. I used to wish that my mum would let me have 'proper shop bought dresses'!

Now I am an adult I look at those dresses and photographs of me in a range of pretty dresses and know that my mum showed her love for me through all those hours of pinning, smocking, embroidering and hemming and that I was a very fortunate little girl. :hugish:

I am sure your little girl will appreciate all the work and love that goes into her hand made dresses.
