Nutcracker Dress

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 look beautiful.  

She looked beautiful. 
A beautiful dress for a beautiful girl and a beautiful tradition.   


  1. No mention of a fancy new machine that may have played a part in this dress? Hoping to see a post about it soon! LOVE the dress!

  2. She's such a cutie and the dress looks great too.
