Dress Photoshoot

Before Lena was born, my mom and I sewed her a little outfit: dress, bonnet, and bloomers.  Every now and then I put the dress on her just to see if it fits yet.  At 4.5 months, we’re getting close.

Lena isn’t always amenable to photo shoots, though.  Things started out beautifully this time.

When my mom first spotted the fabric (not Liberty of London, but a good look-a-like), she sent me pictures from the middle of the fabric store; she knew it was just what I was looking for.  Hours of decisions and stitching and ornery buttonholes later, she is right.

For the next photo, I tried on the hat, which still needs to be adjusted to her head circumference whenever the dress does fit her.  Lena’s still looking cute, but the charm is fading…

And after that photo she decided it was time to flip…

… and the photo shoot ended like this. 

Maybe I should have tried on the bloomers too?

    Just want to say that Erin used to make the exact same face as Lena is making in the last picture. Every time we wrestled her into a dress. Be warned, you might have a little tom-boy on your hands! :)
