You see, our school has a Father Daughter Dance every year. I tried and tried to get my oldest to go when she was in elementary school, but she never gave in. The thought of putting on a dress and dancing in public was not her cup of tea. My daughter, E, is in Kindergarten now. I was so excited that she wanted to go. She asked her daddy if he could take her to the Princess Dance and of course, he said yes. Honestly, I was a little surprised by his enthusiasm. I can't even get him to even dance with me in the kitchen. But, I was very excited for my little one.
E had a great time looking online for dresses. She picked three or four that she liked, but insisted that it needed to be gray and black. So, I sort of combined the design of them and bought all the fabric,as seen in the photo above. Next, I drafted a pattern and went to work. Wanna see how it turned out?
E's eyes are sensitive to light so she almost always closes her eyes if I use the flash. ugh!
Here she is getting in the car:
She was so excited!
This is a closeup of the flower headband I made to match the flowers on her dress. I used this tutorial to make the flower for the headband and the flowers for the neckline of her dress.
Eyes open without a flash.
Hubby said she had a great time and danced a lot. There was a craft station where the girls made necklaces. They snacked on Chick-Fil-A, cupcakes (or in E's case, icing) and punch. He also mentioned that there were several moms there taking photos and videos. I have GOT to get my hands on one of those videos! Anyway, E had a great time with her daddy. Can't wait until next year!
