Leia's new dress

I have been meaning to get some sewing done but have just been too busy with the kids and too tired at night so nothing is coming out of my workshop. But, I did manage to finish up this dress I made for Leia a while back and I think it was the perfect get-back-into-sewing-project I could have ever done. I hand dyed the material and then used one of my go to 2 year old pattern from Weekend Sewing. The best part was Leia helping me make it and then wanting to put it on as soon as it was completed and then as if she hadn't already made me feel like the luckiest mom in the world she says thank you over and over again as she dances in her new dress. My mom crocheted some flowers for me when I was home visiting so I put a bead in one of them and added it to the dress. Leia loves the flower just as much as she loves the dress.
