white ruffle collar dress



Awhile back I made a version of the servant frock in grey, with a ruffled collar. I said at the time that I'd write up how I did the collar and then promptly forgot. Oh, my empty promises! But with spring in sight and the need for a new dress for my wild one (if you doubt my choice of adjectives, please look below) I finally am following through. Here's the link (and the caveat that this is just how I happen to do it. There are surely other ways that might be better -).

I love seeing the muddy bum on this gorgeous dress- we have the tablecloth dress and it's muddy more often than not :)

Nice when kids can be kids. My daughter came home from school one day asking if I would be upset if she got grass stains on her clothes. Further questioning revealed that one of her friends wouldn't play on the grass because her mother would be upset if she got grass stains on her clothes. How nice to be able to be a kid (wild or not!) without adult worries. (cute dress)
