An Elsa Dress for Riley

Wow! Two weeks sure went fast. My son and family left this morning and Riley and I almost parted without crying but.... there were tears but she started and then what could I do!  Enough said about that.

Yesterday, with my little pixie to keep me company, I managed to finish the much anticipated Elsa dress using McCall's 7000.



I didn't take construction photos but I snapped a couple of Riley wearing ,very happily,  her "perfect"  (her words)  Elsa dress.




And because I can't leave her little sister Poppy out here's a gratuitous shot taken at the mall.



I'm getting anxious to get to my sewing room to sew something but have no idea what. I'm pretty sure I'll come up with something so check back next weekend to take a look.

I did visit your blogs during the last few days but was usually too tired to leave comments. I'll make up for that in the next couple of days .

More soon from

HOW cute!!! The crying comment brought to mind the time we went to Disney World. At the end of the visit, our plane left first (we were coming home to Texas and the kids were headed back to St. Louis) so the DD, DSIL and DGD came to our gate to see us off. I'm crying as we all hug. DGD (7 at the time - we had just celebrated her 7th birthday at Disney), crying too, looked up at DD and asked, "Why are we crying?" I always hate to say "bye."

Too sweet! I am in the midst of planning two Frozen capes to make for my god daughter (and two for her America Girl doll) but I love the whole ensemble you made. Precious!
