ice princess

That's maybe not the nicest sounding title for a post, but it is what I think of when I look at this snowflake, icy blue corduroy dress. No bad feelings here.

It's a fine-wale corduroy that I bought last year knowing that I wanted to do something for Abby with it. Last winter came and went. So, now that it's going to be 90 degrees this weekend, time to haul out the corduroy, right?

I love the sparkly sequins in the middle of some of the snowflakes, I love the pin tucks in the front, I love the snowflake buttons. But I made this dress size 1 bodice, size 3 length. I plan to have my daughter wear it this winter with a pretty long sleeved top or turtleneck and tights. I figured I could always hem it. Only problem... I'm once again not sure what else to do with her skinny little frame. She better bulk up!!! Or I better buy a FAT turtleneck. The length seems like she'll grow into it just fine, but the bodice is swimming on her little 15m self. Maybe by 21 months she'll fit a 12m dress???!!

Ha! It's really pretty ... What's with different size tops ... Lubbock's almost a 4T on top and still wears 18m bottoms. He's got a big head, though.
