There is a huge stack of works-in-progress on my sewing table, most of which is for my eight year old. I hope to finish it all before warm weather is here to stay.
This fabric reminds me of the Brady girls and their groovy room, which isn’t so bad. Molly likes certain prints and I like certain prints and if Marcia Brady green and pink is meeting halfway then all is well. The dress pattern is from here.
The truth is I really fell in love with this yellow fabric, Molly didn’t like it at all. But chance had it that I found myself in the same store for another reason just a few days later so I bought it and made her another dress.
She likes it now :)
I’ve made her some other things like pull on pants and easy stuff that she can lounge and sleep in. The clothes in stores for her age group alarm me, I want to keep her cute and little as long as I can.
That is why she has rainbow pants and the modern day Dorothy pant outfit…because she is cute and little and loves color and singing Beatles songs while she rides her bike up and down the driveway.
Eight years old is a great age to be.
