Adina's new dress

I made this dress after seeing a sundress on the cover of a Sew Beautiful magazine. The smocking insert came from a size twenty-four month bubble that was outgrown. We loved the watermelons and I was able to find the gingham check fabric on Martha Pullen's web site that matched the smocking. Adina is proudly wearing the dress to her nursery school graduation.

A new dress for Sabrina, Adina's doll

On Sunday, Adina and Eva's mother, two grandmother's and aunt went to the New York for a tea at the American Girl store. We bought lots of gifts for the girls and this dress will be added to the gifts. The store has beautiful displays where ever you look. Each displays tells a story which would stimulate the imagination. After making our purchases, we went to the cafe where we joined Kyle, her mother and grandmother, and had tea to celebrate Adina's and Kylie's birthdays. It was so much fun. I think that I'd like to celebrate my next birthday that way.
