My favorite dress from yesteryear

I can't believe my Mom found this!
We thought all the smocked dresses she made us were gone. She loaned them to someone at church, but, sadly, never had them returned. :(

But somehow this one was found in her closet and it fits Ella!


I wore this for the first day of school in the third grade. It was my FAVORITE dress my Mom made at that time.

I remember spinning around and sitting down and watching the skirt puff up around me.


I felt like a princess every time I wore it and I still get that same feeling when I see Ella in it.


She looked so beautiful for church on Sunday. :)

I still want to learn how to smock... maybe my Mom can give me a little lesson when she gets her this weekend! I'm so excited!



I love that lace edging on the collar, too.
So sweet.

Thanks Mom.
