I just got back from a Maggie's doctors appointment where our doctor gave me back Sadie's allergy results since they'd just come in and she was awesome enough to remember. Sadie is allergic to dogs, cats and... wheat. She said she's not so allergic that she can't ever have it, but that it would be a good idea to eliminate it as much as possible and that it is probable that it's making her feels sick (Sadie had said she thought eating bread hurt her stomach). So... that's the latest allergy news, and it pretty much means that the kids in this house don't eat wheat or dairy.
In much happier news, Sadie's dress for the Daddy/Daughter dance is almost done. I have a few finishing touches to add, but I snapped pictures of it when she tried it on for me today and I'm pretty excited with what we have so far.
Sadie helped design it (and I sewed it without a pattern) and she picked out almost all of the fabrics (I threw in some extra sparkly velvet at the end since she'd asked for "extra sparkle"). There were so many I felt a little ridiculous sewing it and I was seriously wondering how it would turn out. There are two types of velvet (one sparkly, one crushed), shimmering gymnastics spandex, satin, sparkly crepe and lace. Now that she's abruptly decided that purple was her favorite color in the entire world she's been a little sad about all the pink in her closet and so this is a purple extravaganza:
|Ready for the ball! |
|Daddy wasn't a fan of this one... but it showed the dress so perfectly! |
|A little over two yard of fabric make the skirt super twirly.|
That is a beautiful dress! It really is. She looks lovely in it. I'm so glad you gave her the choices of fabric because she will love it even more. She will look beautiful for the dance.ReplyDelete

Aw, just tell him the kiss is for him!ReplyDelete
Awesome dress! Just curious....are you going to look into special low gluten hosts for your parish? I believe there are some nuns who make them. They can't eliminate all wheat as its required but they do something different to try to reduce the gluten. Or alternatively are you just going to encourage them ( your children) to accept only one species? I cant imagine Mae doing well with regular hosts.ReplyDelete
Cam, that dress is gorgeous!!ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful! The princess and the dress are amazing. Love you, NaniReplyDelete
I guess Sadie's allergy to cats means the mice will not have THAT to worry about! Too bad! I hate them meeces. :-)ReplyDelete
