    So much fun! She doesn’t look too happy about it though. Is she not a fan of ruffles or just not a fan of cameras?

    The funny thing is she loves the dress, the crabby face is because it is cold here and she has to wear a shirt under it.

    I love the ruffles and the apron front – wonderful! And the crabby face is great as well.

    Love the face… 😀

    Cool dress too!

    That dress is too cute and I am amazed that you can sew by simply copying a picture.

    The pout is cute too, my girls never behave for a professional photographer either.
