I found this fabric at the craft store a few years ago and I'm hooked. These adorable dresses are so simple to make that I bet a monkey with a stapler could come up with similar results. The top of the dress is elastic so all you need to do is measure, cut and sew one straight seam. I went the extra mile and added shoulder straps, for a more modest look.
Yes, these photos are from today and yes that is Mae (and Binny) running around outside. She still had a low fever this morning but she says she feels fine. I've been giving her Tylenol to keep her fever down but other than that she seems normal. Mae's doctor called this morning to check on her too which eased my mind.
This afternoon, the girls and I went to the Farmer's Market in town and bought some asparagus and a few cheap perennials. They both wore the black sundresses out and not one person asked me if they were twins. That must be a new record. When will
old ladies with nothing better to talk about people get it that just because they happen to be wearing the same dress, that doesn't necessarily mean that they have the same DNA?
And because I'm feeling nostalgic today, here's a photo of my dad and the girls wearing the same style dresses 2 years ago
