Last week, Allie asked me if she could have a Tangled dress. I told her that I could maybe sew her one. Someday. She replied with, "Well, that might take too long. Probably the store will be faster." Rich loved that one.
It has been 15 years since I have sewn an item of clothing. Over the past five years, I have only sewn curtains so I thought it would be a good idea to start with a simple project. We went with aprons, seeing as the girls enjoy baking.
I ran out of eyelet lace trim (by three inches!) so I had not finished Allie's when we took this picture. And as you can see from the box Allie is holding, the girls broke in the aprons by helping Daddy make brownies. Anna had chocolate all over hers. I know that they are aprons but I thought we could go a day or two before trashing them. (You better believe I threw those in the wash after we tucked the girls in tonight. Chocolate is gone.)
Please note that Em as "being tall" in those pictures. She's really not taller than Allie and Anna.
The girls loved their aprons and wore them for most of the day, which made Mommy smile.
Lucky for me, Grammy had brought over some trim last week so I was able to finish Allie's apron.
That's Em dancing with Minnie in the background.
I wanted to include this photo for two reasons. First, Allie has that "I just caught the paparazzi taking my photo" expression on her face. Second, do you see the pile of stuff near the wall? The girls had all of their babies sleeping in the family room. Rich suggested that the girls listen to some music and they decided that they wanted to dance. Apparently, clean up means throw everything in a pile in the corner.
One last one. Ring-around-the-rosey with Minnie.
I'm done sewing aprons for awhile.
