Every year daughter's great aunt takes us to our local ballet company's performance of the Nutcracker. And every year, I make my daughter a dress of her choice for the show.
She's not so into dresses, so I let her pick the fabrics and the style.
Here's her dress from last year.
A year later, she looks so much older (to me at least).
She chose all the fabrics, and though I wouldn't have put these colors together, I think they
She looked beautiful.
A beautiful dress for a beautiful girl and a beautiful tradition.
