So this was actually 2 full weeks ago and I’m just kind of behind on blogging and photo editing. Anne is in Pre-K this year, I’m so not ready for Kindergarten, but I guess it doesn’t matter what I’m ready for, it is right around the corner and I better get on board!
Anne picked out the dress pattern and fabrics that we used to make her dress this year. We were at Fabric Depot in Portland and she had so much fun picking everything out. The crazy thing is that with all the fabrics available, she managed to pick out 3 Riley Blake prints all on her own. Clearly the girl knows coordinating prints when she sees them!
Last year she said she wanted to be a pilot and she actually said that first, but then she insisted I write Doctor down on her board. I guess with how much time she has spent in the hospital the doctors have made a good impression on her. She has very high aspirations in life!
Our preschool doesn’t do back packs for the kids, they have preschool bags in a range of colors for each child. Cuts out on the competition aspect of school that will start all too soon next year. She was stoked that her bag was pink. As Anne will tell you “Pink goes with everything!”
She was so excited for school that she kept looking in the window while we waited for her teacher to open the door.
Did you make anything for the first day of school?
I love her dress! Anne is adorable!!
Her dress is adorable – you both did good!! Don’t have to make anything for school any more with all my kids grown and gone!
Oh, my goodness! What a little cutie pie!! She looks so pretty all dressed up for her first day.
Oh my, Anne is growing up so very fast!!! And life goes by even faster as they get older. Her dress is adorable – naturally! Enjoy this season of firsts!!! Many more to come!!
Anne is my fashion diva! I love that she knows what she likes!!
she is such a cutie. Yes I made skirts and dresses for our daughter and shirts for our son. And I did the same thing, over the summer we would go fabric stores and pick out patterns and they picked out their fabrics for that pattern. We had a ball and they really enjoyed wearing their clothes that mom made. LOL that is until our daughter hit second grade. She has always been such a tom boy. After that I could make her clothes for summer only. Our son, on the other hand loved the shirts that I made him and I stopped making them for him the summer before high school when he wanted store bought shirts like his friends. Each child is so very different. Now our daughter quilts in her spare time and our son sews and sells civil war clothes to re-enactors ( he and his fiancé are both re-enactors) Never know where it will lead. Keep up the wonderful work with Anne and continue to have fun sewing her clothes. She will remember it for a long time to come.
You know, it seems like we just had this post for LAST year’s first day of school! What a fast year it’s been! She looks adorable in the dress you made – she did a GREAT job of choosing fabrics!
She is lovely. Great to see options like pilot and doctor and not celebrity or model.
Anne’s dress is adorable and so is she.
This brings back such sweet memories of my little boys starting pre-school. AM is an absolute doll! She looks adorable in her pretty dress handmade by her talented mama.
Excellent choice of dress fabric there Anne!
