Lest you think I got over my fear of sewing machines, I'll be upfront and tell you I did not make these dresses. With 5 girls who love to wear things that match, sewing clothes would be a great skill to have. Maybe someday, but in the meantime, Great Aunt Nancy to the rescue!
In June she sent a package with the promised dresses, but she mailed it to our house while we were on vacation. We got the package after we got home and posed for some pictures. They are turquoise with matching bolero jackets and little modesty shorts for underneath. J doesn't like posing for pictures, can you tell? But the other girls do, and I got several more good ones! Meanwhile, while we were still on vacation, we called from my parents' house to ask if we could drive up to visit them on our long drive home, and she told us there was a package waiting for us at home with some dresses, but not to worry, because she had just finished another set of dresses and we could get them when we came! She also made some little book bags for the girls and let them each pick a book from her "library" to take home. Here is a picture of the dresses we picked up at Aunt Nancy's house. They are sundresses with little watermelons on them. Very cute! Thanks so much Aunt Nancy! The girls love their matching dresses! :-)
