A New Dress

What are two girls supposed to do on a cold Valentine's Day? Sew a new dress of course. DD and I spent the afternoon making a dress for her to wear to her upcoming band concert next month. We took a T-shirt with some smocking on the front bodice that she already had. We bought some print fabric a couple weeks ago - it has little music notes and instruments all over it - CUTE! She normally wouldn't pick black and white because she hates black, but for band concerts everyone must wear black and white so she had no choice in the matter.

Then, using a pattern from (LOVE that site!), we put this dress together lickety split. (I have no idea why she has that strange look on her face like her lips are superglued together. Or, why the dress is looking sorta potato sackish. It's probably the way she is standing. I guess we need some modeling practice. The dress really is cute in person.)

Here's the fabric up close:

Now, we have to get some new shoes!

It's Snowing! It's Snowing!

Well, it's actually stopped snowing now. But it was snowing all morning. We got about 3 or 4 inches of the white, fluffy stuff. Not much for some people, but for here - that's alot. DD has been out sledding with a trashcan lid for hours. She's thrilled!
