My girl loves to catch frogs. She is a pretty snappy frog hunter too!
So my talented mom made her a frog inspired dress which quickly became a favorite and was worn often... barefoot in the backyard, with mud boots at the pond and every which way in between... except for with tights. No tights for this girl!
When she grew out of it she asked me to make the skirt portion of the dress into a skirt. I had done this before with other long dresses my mom had made. I said yes and it sat in the wip pile.
Yesterday I was inspired to get some projects finished and the fabric closet was open, which is always an invitation for little people to explore. She found the dress, brought it over to the desk and gave me the look.
I started deconstructing.
She is going to help me sew the casing for the skirt today. The next question was what to do with the super cute bodice?
While kiddos were busy at play I decided on a raw edge bookmark for my frog lovin' girl...
It was fun to pick out little bits to add and it was just the type of messy sewing I needed.
She loved it!
As I cut and sewed along I was listening to these talented brothers & their band. So good!
