Better Late Than Never

Life has a way of going on without giving you time to pause or take a breath. I've barely had time to get on the computer in the past few weeks, let alone blog. Any downtime I've had is when I'm sleeping. Thank you President's Day for allowing me time to get caught up and make a fried egg for breakfast.

I have a younger sister. She's a 16 year old darling. My dreams from when I was in high school are coming true. I get to boss her around and help her get ready for dances. She takes it like a champ.

She had a winter dance back in January so naturally, I took her dress shopping. She's a petite little thing and has a hard time finding dresses that fit and flatter. After 3.5 hours of searching, we got in the car defeated. That's when I got the idea to take my big sister duties to the extreme and suggested making her a dress.

I guess she trusts me. I have never made a dress and didn't have a pattern to guide me, but it worked.

I made the top out of crazy 80s curtain material handed down to me from my mother. The bottom is made out of some form of thin polyester. It's not perfect, but it's pretty darn close. And she loved it, which is what counts.
