This morning I started boxing up Jocelyn's 3-6 month clothing to move to the 6-12 month box. (She is growing so fast :) Now, I have to say, this is a slightly emotional process for me. I have seen my 3 girls grow out of most of these clothes and to box them up for the last time ( Yes, our little family is done) gets me a little weepy. So when I went to box up this dress and realized that Jocelyn had never gotten to wear it (a little cold for a summer dress) I couldn't help but dress her up for a little picture and then of course shamelessly post it here.
I made this about 3 years ago based on a tutorial I saw over at Crazy Mom Quilts. I mean, who wouldn't love patchwork added to 3D sewing. Unfortunately, by the time I finished the dress my then baby (Kamryn) could not fit in it. (She was a wee bit pudgy) So I cut the back and made this little alteration so I could button her in it instead. And I just loved how it turned out. I mean, who doesn't love a little bum peaking out of the back :)
So now, I can go finish boxing it up and know that Jocelyn got to wear it at least once. Even if it was only for a photo shoot. (And it is a good thing I did this today because I could barely do up those buttons. Maybe I should feed them less, tee hee hee :) Oh, and I am sure I will probably cry a little more, but that is okay, because nostalgic tears are good ones :)
