i can not believe the day has actually come and gone.
my oldest, k1 has turned eight years old.
that sure went fast. it certianly doesn't seem like it has been eight years.
but it has.
and an eighth birthday is a special one. as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are baptized at the age of eight.

traditionally a baptism dress is white, but i went with green. and it is another copycat design. the original was made by grosgrain kathleen. here is her version, complete with fantastic photography:

that is one of the best parts of sewing-- seeing progress, being able to improve on a skill.
love you, pretty girl!
