hello, my name is Jennifer, and i am a pack rat.

i willingly confess that i am the world's biggest pack rat. after the 4 big kids were grown, i saved a multitude of things in the attic, even though i was fairly sure that i would never need them again. i saved things from the obvious of clothes and toys, to games and books, as well as a myriad of other miscellaneous things.

so imagine my delight when i went on to have 2 more children, and am able to bring down all the "attic delights" for 2 more little ones to enjoy.

when M was a baby, i made her this purple gingham dress, which she wore for her first birthday picture.

it was an organizational miracle, and A also wore it on the day she turned one.

now 3 little girls have worn the simple purple gingham dress, with baby B bringing up the rear.

now it's time for the little purple gingham dress to go back up to the attic, lovingly packed away, anticipating the next sweet little girl to wear the birthday dress.

That is fantastic. All your girls look so much alike at that age.
I made Niyah an Easter dress that looked very similar to yours, I really wish I was more of a pack rat.

Thanks for the advice on the binding, I did buy a bias tape maker, but have been too scared to use it, maybe I will be able to find a good quilting book while we are in Lancaster.

Have a great day!

Such a cute timeless little dress on your 3 beautiful little girls. It looks as good now as when you made it Jennifer!
