Vegbee, I thought it was only right to let you know that that your "lack of judgement" (I think it's darling) may not be temporary.  I'm not trying to scare you, but I don't want you to wake up some day and be blindsided.  I speak from experience.  I am the mommy to SIX monkeys (five out of the oven and one cooking till May).  I am also a former avid concert goer/punk whatever you want to call it.  ( I saw Danzig back in the day at a small theater.  I was standing next to a 9 foot tall giant man and had him boost me up to surf.  Glen saw me and did this Elvis point and smile thing and I swooned like a dorky school girl Tongue
  Anywho, your Danzig dress is something I sooo would have put on my oldest (13), but now i am just thankful her wardrobe consists of blue jeans and aeropostle t shirts!  I think it is just a motherly instinct to keep your children as innocent as possible for as long as posssible or some variation of that.  You look at your precious little pumpkin(s) and it's hard to think that someday before you know it, they will be grown and doing things that thinking about your lil' pumkin doing makes you cringe.  Sooo my theory is as mothers we put them in these darling, LACEY, and otherwise innocent looking outfits to aid in the slowing down process of their inevitable aging!   I'm sure everyone is different, but from my experience, even the "hard core" from my way back days have as your husband might say, gone astray.  It just happens!  Go with the flow.  Your lil' monkey has the most beautiful smile that could carry any outfit like it was high fashion.  Someday she'll look back at those pictures and think "how could you?!!"...  until she has a little monkey of  her own Tongue
Blessings

oh, you are so right.  I think that the creation of this outfit has just destroyed any pretentions I had to still being young and hip.  Haha, okay I was never that, but I've definitely traded the time I spent going to dying my hair unnatural colours and going to gigs (and being weirdly proud of all the famous rockers who have dripped sweat off the stage onto me) for trying to perfect my tofu loaf and hand stitching fabric flowers onto my daughter's dresses.  Durn, being mom has ruined my cynicism! 

Of course, my kid is the only preschooler in town who's knowledge of punk anthems rivals her knowledge of her abcs.  I'm not sure I'm at the point of acceptance yet  Cheesy

it's cute as is, but if you aren't happy with it, i say "crap it up!" (meant in the very best of craptastic ways, of course) bring on the ribbons and sleeve poofs and underskirts! Wink

oh, durnit, cheytown!  I totally have that issue - I bet it wiggled its way into my demented brain and was morphed by my whacked out pregnancy chemicals into this dress. 

As it is, the child went and put a big spaghetti sauce stain right on the front.  If it doesn't come out, speaking of crapping it up, I'm putting a giant pocket there.  With a bunny applique.

Next time I feel the need to make an emergency lace run I know I've got to just take two steps back from whatever I'm sewing and get some perspective  Roll Eyes


I think that's a pretty good life lesson for us all to take ... Smiley
