So, this is one of those dresses that's really a bit too small, now. As evidenced by its length when she stands up:
But it's got a super long hem in it, so if I can get around to taking that out, she can certainly wear it through the spring and summer. Which we will certainly want to be doing, 'cause check out this detail:
Even Clara is impressed.
Even though we didn't venture out of the house, this clearly isn't a winter dress. So, I thought we should pair it with this precious handmade sweater.
Not just handmade by anyone, either. Handmade for me, by Clara's "Grandma Doris" (who you can see here and here). Pretty special to have a piece like this.
Not only did Doris make the sweater, but she also made this beautiful quilt that Clara is sitting on. Perfect.
Thanks for being my model, Clara!
