These days Lauren wears only dresses and skirts, which has been working in my favor. I just don’t buy those items anymore so if that’s what she wants to wear, it is—by default—handmade. Her resistance has waned. As long as the item has some pouf to it she is happy. Today the item needed some green to it and we came up short in our “off the rack” options. So desperate was she not to get pinched at school, I was left with no choice (honestly none, I swear!) but to dig into the stash and turn to the trusted Lazy Days skirt pattern (oh the possibilities…) just in time to get us all out the door this morning, albeit a few minutes late, but with a smile on this little leprechaun’s face and a swish in her step.
Happy St. Patty’s!
