The Spring Dance

It was Spring Dance time around our parts. You may remember our experience for the winter dance, specifically finding the dress. It is difficult to find something adorable AND appropriate. Around these parts we like to keep our shoulders covered and keep the length to the knee. They don't make dresses like this my friends. Especially in our price range and for a middle school activity (this is not prom!)

We found an amazing skirt in California. But in the end we could not find the right shoes and top to go with it.

So, we started over again, and found this lovely little number at Dillards (in the children's section) for under $40.

We got these shoes to pair with it.

I found a similar material and added a bit of a sleeve. I also had to take in the bodice. I could have done a better job at that but seamstress I am not.

We were both pleased with the result.

A good time was had by all.
