Reluctant Model

Ha Ha!  Finally got a smile!

Josie wanted to try on her new purple dress, however, she did not want to face the camera for a picture.  With a hand from her Mommy and a funny face from Papa we got one smile. 

I am so pleased that the dress fits and it looks so adorable!!!  Happy Grandma. 

Time to start a new one.

Easter Ruffles

Easter is coming and Josie's new dress is ready.  Lots of ruffley lace and ribbon fit for a princess.

 
The back has buttons and buttonholes.  Oh how I hate buttonholes!  They seem so simple, however, there is always one that gives me fits.   And it is usually the last one.  The alternative is a zipper and, well, let's just say I need more practice on zippers too.  I need to figure out how to do an invisible zipper with the bodice lining. 
Guess I had better get busy and practice on more zippers and buttonholes before my little princess isn't interested in ruffles and ribbon!
