celebration dress





Do you know what my little girl decided? My silly little 3 1/2 year old.

She decided to stop sucking her thumb 9 days ago and hasn't done it since. I am so impressed because she made the decision and the self control she has exhibited is astounding.

She usually sucked her thumb in the car, to go to bed, when she was nervous or watching tv but, no more. Not even once.

In honor of this incredible achievement I made her a new dress. The first few days she got coins but since has forgotten them. There was also a balloon one day.

Go Scarlet.

Her dress was made from a remnant I picked up at an antique store and is black with the sweetest bouquets of flowers.
I made the pattern myself. Should have ironed it before I took these, huh?
