I am a proud auntie. My 5 yr old niece, has just graduated from kindergarten. She got excellent grades as well and is a beloved student at the school.
When I asked her mother what she'd wear to the graduation, she said that she got a last minute notice from the school that the attire would be dressy/church wear.
I sprang into action as super Auntie and whipped up a dress for my niece in her chosen color, pink.I hadn't measured her in a while so I guessed at her size and made her dress in a size 5. She had a piece of her great grandmother with her as the flower she wore was from the 100th birthday celebration for my grandmother. That made it oh so special.
I was so happy to see that the dress fit her perfectly and she loved it! She's a very active little girl and she buzzed about....a lot, so I was so glad that the embroidered organza and satin fabrics I used, could take the abuse and still look great.
