I have been working on transferring pictures from old computers, old phones, and old memory cards recently. It is with a sigh of relief that I am finding beautiful pictures of my daughter the day she was born, the proofs from the photographers that requested for her to sit for them the first week she was born and lastly pictures of a dress I pattern-tested for the sweetest designer this last Spring. I feel like preserving the picture memories of my daughter are more fragile to grasp, like the delicate strings of a spider's web, since she will be an only child I want to cherish every moment of her life. I won't go too crazy following her around every minute she breathes, but I will probably take a lot of pictures! I will probably make her a lot of clothes, especially as she loves her twirly dresses!
THE Missing Finish
Along with Miss Z's Baby pictures, I found pictures of a dress I pattern tested in May. The designer Melissa Stramel designs for little girls in mind under the company of Lilac Lane.

|You can't tell from the other pictures, but the dress comes to just under the knees.|
|Another cute picture of the dress!|

Have any of you used patterns by Lilac Lane? What are your thoughts? There are a couple other patterns I really want to make for Miss Z, but I also have a pile of Oliver + S to tempt me! There are so many good designers out there right now for children's clothes! I have several other pieces of clothing I plan to share with you before too long as Miss Z is out-growing everything including the Hopscotch dress pictured above!
Thanks for stopping by!
