Summer dresses

Here is a little dress I put together for M. I didn't use a pattern but it is such a simple style it didn't need one. The weather is FINALLY turning and little dresses like this will be perfect. It would be perfect, that is, if she liked it. She poked a nice long pin through my heart when, upon trying it on the first time, looked at herself in the mirror and said, "no thank you.". No thank you? But you picked out the fabric, was my reply. Still, "no thank you. I don't like the little button". The little sweet vintage glass button. Lately she is very weird about her clothes. She wants to dress older. But she is just newly six. Not even six and a half and I can't bear the thought of letting her dress in some of the hoochie clothes that are out there. She has always been tall for her age , wearing a size 7 or 8 when she was five so to find things that still look young at that size was tough. I am going to hold onto it for another week or two in case she changes her mind but if not, it is off to a friend.

What a cute little dress, I'll cross my fingers over here hoping your daughter changes her mind. I completely agree with your comment on the clothes in the stores. My 6 year old will not wear a 2 piece bathing suit and I couldn't even find a one piece at the local stuff-mart. Good luck.

I so hear you on the 6 year old going on 14. Maybe you could swap out the button for something else. It's a great dress for summer.
