My little sister graduated from 8th grade last night, and part of this rite of passage is a final dance for all the 8th graders, and they all get dressed up and such, and it's a lot of fun (as I did this five years ago)!!

So I made her dress, per her request, and she told me pink and ruffley, and she picked the neckline, length and fabric, so it was a pretty collaborative effort. I was iffy on the fabric choice at first, but I think she made the right choice! It's made of 100% Rayon jersey, which is soooo soft, I love it. I'm not a huge fan of this rosey pink color, but it totally works for this dress.

april!

I really like that dress and it looks great on her. I think the black belt and shoes are a nice touch, it makes the pink seems a little less sweet Smiley. I bet she loved it.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
