    Lovely. What a wonderful gift, these pictures, to remember a moment that is so precious. You have a beautiful family. My favorite is your son walking away from the camera and those red suspenders.

    Merrilee, is there any way I can but a dress like yours. I love it so much. You never find dresses that cute that are “g-friendly”.

    thanks Denise…the fit of the dress is a bit off (and the hem needs re-doing) but I learned a lot and I like the look. I used the Project Runway Simplicity pattern 2725 and added the ruffle myself (very easy).
