because I have two girls who love to wear them.
When school shopping for Indigo, I asked, how about some shorts?
She responded, I don't really care for shorts, Mom.
And maybe that comes as no surprise from a girl who's so nurturing and down-to-earth... but loves to pose like this.
I have no idea where she gets that, but she's been doing it for a long time.
You'd better believe when one of my girls gets a dress the other wants one, too.
Oh yes, even Stephen.
So I sewed up another linen A line, using this lovely pattern. (Oh, how I love this pattern. The instructions are clear, the construction of this dress is a breeze and the price is right!)
This time I appliqued it with the Orla Kiely inspired poppy and tulip template from my handstitched class.
And it seemed just about right for our girl who likes to take some time alone to watch the sunset.
Yes, yes it did.
