My new cousin Preslie's purple dress

I have finally finished the dress that I have been working on for months. I have been making this while finishing my last two semesters of graduate school. Whenever my thesis got to be too much to handle I would take this out and do a row. It takes about an hour to complete a row so overall I would say this project took me over 35 hours. I love making these dresses because the babies look so cute in them but they are a lot of work for someone so little. I know that both she and her mom, Christine, will enjoy it.

Christine is actually my mom's cousin. So I think that makes Preslie my second cousin. No matter. She is family and that is all that counts.

  1. Cousin, second cousin, whatever. I'm sure she'll just be thrilled to get a wonderful handmade dress.
