.Maya Dress.

I made a Modkid Maya dress for Lil recently.  It was a great sew, and very cute everyday play dress.  Lil really loves it.  In fact, I am not ashamed to tell you that she wore it non-stop for 72 hours before I had to pry it off her little body and give it a wash.  She declared that it was a nightie after bath.  It was actually really handy as it meant there was one less child to get dressed in the morning!
The dress should fit her for quite awhile.  Great length and nice and roomy all over.  Will be perfect for summer.  She has also worn it with a long-sleeved top under and stockings and it looked equally as cute on a cold day.
Oh, and if I haven't told you before...let me fill you in on a little secret.  This girl has a mind of her own.  She is very stubborn and not easily persuaded to do things like pose for Mum during a quick photo shoot.  (I often hear my parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles laugh that she is "just like Toni when she was a little girl" but I always shut my ears at that point.  I was truly angelic.)
Fortunately, she does respond well to a bit of bribery and within no time I can have her doing tremendous stunt-shots.

(Fiona...I hope you are feeling very afraid!  Pull out your best child-coaxing abilities for Friday!)

That's a cute Maya dress and looks great on Lil. I made one too but I never got around to blogging it. I must dig it out from the laundry basket lol.

Very cute Toni! My Maya loves her dress and its perfect for dragging on after swimming lessons. Lil looks very sweet in the short sleeved version.
