Molly is a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder and just loves the Little House on the Prairie stories. She has been wanting a dress in the style of Laura's dresses for a long time and I finally got round to making one for her earlier this week, ready for her to wear on a day out on Thursday. She knew we were going to see DollMum and her daughter and have a 'Cowboys, Country girls and Indians' themed day and so thought it would be just perfect for the occasion. An apron/pinafore is still yet to come, but she seemed okay with that as we both agreed our first two prototypes just weren't quite what was wanted.
She wanted to show off the dress which suits her perfectly.
Of course she had to have her hair plaited just like Laura's as well.
So whilst the fabric is not quite in keeping with the time period, we are making do with what we have in our stash rather than buying more, it doe suit the style of dress.
Fortunately she Molly found a pair of red lace up boots in the shoe cupboard and thinks they go quite well with the dress.
Molly is such a sweet girl.
As such, there are rather a few photos of her!
Molly eventually decided that enough photos had been taken and returns to reading her book.
