Two Down!

I have to admit Fred's dress wasn't that hard. She likes it and I let her make a few choices. First about the sleeves, I would have gone full length. Then we compromised on the collar, I wanted the point and she wanted it shorter than the original.



I'm still a bit concerned about her body shape but I'm not mentioning that to her. Her measurements are actually slightly smaller than at Halloween but I've still got my eye on her.

Jr. and I went through my pattern drawers and picked out one for her dress. It will feel a little bit like George's but be different enough to still be her own person. I went hunting in my closet and I actually have a shirt that will look good with their dresses, now I just need a tie for ElCid and we'll match again! Twice in one year, people might think it's a trend...

Seriously? Your child is no longer a waif & I wouldn't let her start eatin´ cookies and cake and stuff like that, because she´ll blow up like my Aunt Roberta, you know. But I do not think it is cause for serious concern. Just teach her to ride a bike and move to a city where a child can ride a bike safely and she will be fine.

Fred looks very happy - you musta done it right! She looks good in this shade of red, nice choice... it suited George too.

So where is the sketch of Jr's dress? Are you trying to keep us in suspenders?!?!?!

i think george is hot! what a supermodel all posing in her dress, so cute! it makes me sad when my kora doesn't wanna wear cute fluffy dresses sometimes and she picks the older more "mature" looking dresses with jackets and belts. :(
