Her Valentine Dress

Our 4 year old daughter is very strong willed. Very. About two years ago she stopped wanting to wear dresses, leggings, bows, or anything at all made by your’s truly. It’s ok. I let her (within reason) wear what she wants and she goes to school most days with jeans and a long sleeved cotton shirt. She’s still beautiful without any frills and I love her individualism.

However, this Patty Young fabric seemed to catch her eye when I got it in the mail and I offered to make her a Valentine’s Day dress. Low and behold – she agreed! And had input – “a HUGE heart on the chest and pockets and hearts on the pockets”.

I only got one little cell phone picture of her wearing it (not from lack of trying to get more!) but here it is and a couple of the dress by itself.

I love her smirk. She's not too psyched about wearing this...but knows she agreed to it. 🙂

Little pockets on each side - WITH hearts. 🙂

Linking up to here this week:
