OMG I finished it!

You may remember a month or so ago when I started this dress with ALL THE RUFFLES? 
Oh my! There were moments I questioned my sanity... but it did come out very cute. 
 I am now a champion rolled hemmer ( on my featherweight thank you very much!) and 19 ruffles later finished this cute little dress using the Daisy Cottage line.
It will eventually go from the shop, where it is currently hanging as a sample to my dear friend Marion's daughter Lily.  
(look at all the sections of the skirt and each a little different from the last) I would have never made this for one of my own children... but for someone else's I was able to push through and finish it. Why is this? I don't know but I have heard the same thing said by other people who sew so I know I am not alone.

Though I made it to be size 7 it was more of an 8 when I tried it on a kiddo so since Lily is just a small 7 she'll have to wait to wear it for a bit.
All my homemade clothing tends to grow a size in the making process...guess it is a good thing I am a quilter rather than a tailor!
