A Dress for Charlotte
Official Numbers: August Edition

A Dress for Charlotte

Charlotte and Daddy have a big date tomorrow night.  Our local Chic-fil-a is putting on a Daddy/Daughter evening complete with waiters and carriage rides.  Little girl has been looking forward to this special evening for a couple of weeks now.  I set out to make her a special dress for the occasion and I’m so pleased with the results.  I’m on a re-purposing kick so I utilized an old pillow case and a 1970’s valance for this project. It took me just about an hour start to finish.  Not too bad!
