Back in the Summer, we were at the zoo and I saw a little girl in a really sweet dress. I asked her mom if I could snap a picture of it with my cell phone. If you haven't gathered yet, I'm a fervent do-it-myself-er and I'm also a penny pincher (that's the nice way to say it). I'm pretty sure this mom was not a dress maker so I figured the dress was from some expensive boutique. Upon reflection, maybe I should have just asked where she got the dress. Instead I made a number of assumptions about it's origin and likely outlandish cost. Anyhow, in the end, once again without a pattern, I put together this new dress for my dear little girl. That was back in May. Five months later, it fits!
