I Forgot I Had This....

Today I found myself in need of a profile picture to accompany my bio on the "About Us" page for the Your Little Princess Costume Design website.  I wanted to do something with a costume, but I didn't have anything recent, so I headed downstairs to the closet where we keep the handful of dresses we've either bought at thrift stores or sewn.

While running over our inventory in my mind, I couldn't remember anything that I had actually made other then a skirt I didn't have a blouse for anymore.   However, when I got down there I discovered and remembered the first costume and major sewing project.

I made this waaaaay back in 2007 and wore it a handful of times to our homeschool group Daddy-Daughter Ball, a few Girls Club tea parties, perhaps another party, and lent it out a few times to siblings and friends. I also slipped a hugely poofy slip under it one year and wore it to a Civil War reenactment.

I did pull it out once for a photoshoot for potential Ink and Fairydust covers and it made it onto the cover of the July 2010 issue.  And then I forgot about it, until I went downstairs today to find something for the profile picture.

I was a bit surprised that it fit... and actually, it fits really well.  Much better then it looks like it fit in the previous pictures of me wearing it....   I'm going to have to find an excuse to wear this again sometime soon. It really is a cute dress.

I ended up glowing in this picture!  A bit random.


  1. Lovely dress and lovely girl!

    PS I like your Doctor Who theme. My brothers just got me into watching it, and after a brief adjustment period to the zany-ness I'm really enjoying it.

    God bless!

  2. You look so cute! And it does fit you perfectly!
