Pinwale Corduroy Extravaganza

This is Molly wearing my glasses. She was just recounting a story from last week about her older brother changing out of his snow covered jeans and running full speed up to his room in his boxers. It is really the only time we have seen him in his underwear for nearly a decade. So you can understand the twinkly laugh in her eye. Oh and yes those are my stay-inside-and never-let-anyone-in-the-world-see-me-glasses.

I made her some apple pants. She has the wisdom of a woman 70 years older than her actual age and while thanking me for making them she ended by saying, "Mom, isn't it funny when real clothes actually look like pajama's?" I made some for her new Christmas doll, that seemed to take some of the PJ effect out.

I have been getting my money's worth out of this pattern (Simplicity 4384), as I used it to make her outfit for the school's holiday party.

The skirt is twirly, even when it's made from corduroy, which makes six year old girls very happy. Though she doesn't look too happy in this picture. I bribed her with licorice. I ate some, too, because it's okay for Moms to eat candy in the morning. They write the rules.

What precious photos! You've made her such beautiful little outfits and I love the matching pants for her dollie. The little red rocking chair is perfect...she looks quite grown up with your glasses on! Happy New Year to your sweet family! I love your new banner, too! ♥

Oh, I want my 6-year-old daughter back! Your girl is just beautiful! I love her twirly skirt and that horse print and doll clothes that match big-girl clothes - we used to have those, too. Sniff.
