When 25 dresses aren't enough

Mary Clare needed another dress. Needed it. And when Mary Clare desperately needs a cute frock, where else does one go but straight to Grandma Thole?

I love it. I mean, Mary Clare loves it. Because she was the one who asked for a pristine little pillowcase dress with pale pink rick rack trim and her initial monogrammed in that very same pale pink. What can I say? The girl knows what she wants.

My mom whipped it out in an hour or two, monogram and all. Because she's my mom. And how happy am I that her new sewing machine does monogramming? Sometimes I lie awake at night just dreaming of the possibilities.


  1. OMG -- LOVE it! So adorable. We may have to name our unborn child something that starts with an "M" just so she can wear that cute little dress.

  2. What a cute dress! An hour or two though?? I spend way more than that on smaller things....and stab my hand repeatedly with a needle in the process. Your mother's got skills.

  3. I'm so jealous of Mary Clare's wardrobe, I can't stand it.
