Ta-daaa! Last night I stayed up way too late to finish Eli’s Halloween costume. Dressmaking is like running. My favorite part is finishing! This dress is d-o-n-e. Unfortunately there is now an apron to worry about. Unlike the dress I don’t have a pattern for the apron so wish me lots of logic and spatial skills!
Last night after finishing the dress I was so excited to see Eli in it that I woke her up and tried it on at 3am! Just kidding I didn’t do that. But I did have a very hard time going to sleep after that so since God knew how badly I wanted to see Eli in it, He decided to wake Eli up at 5:30am!
I was very grumpy about sleeping just a few hours but I quickly changed her out of her pjs and into her dress. She seemed to really like wearing it and later on in the kitchen she held a kitchen towel to her chest and said, “Deh!” (dress)
She may very well have the dressmaking gene in her! She comes from a long line of domestic dressmakers.
I do apologize if you were hoping to see a picture of Eli in her new dress, that’s not happening until Fable Fest in October. As a matter of fact Eli will wearing this dress so much in October you may get sick of seeing her in it!
Until then, we are livin’ for naptime!
