Description

I made the purple one in 1994 for my 10 year old daughter (Siffstitch).  The blue one was made several years earlier and had been outgrown and passed on to her younger cousin, who was 6 in this picture. 

Is Daisy Kingdom still even around?  It was quite popular in the early 1990s.  I even once got to go to the outlet in Portland, Oregon and got scads of fabric (some I still even have --- UNCUT! --- time to see if it can be used for my granddaughter!)

Oh, I remember wearing dresses like this! I also remember driving into Portland with my family... my mom would hop out to shop at Daisy Kingdom while my dad kept the rest of us occupied.

I need to find a picture of my DD wearing the blue dress. I know I have them, just have to get them scanned. I think she wore it for Easter in 1990 or 91. What I do remember is that she wore it to visit me in the hospital (complete with Easter hat), in November of 1991 when her baby brother was born. It was quite sweet. She wanted to be all dressed up to see the baby.

Sadly Daisy Kingdom closed several years ago. I really miss it. They had a fantastic selection of ribbons in the era when I was putting ribbons on ALL the girly dresses I made. I need to look for some photos of Amanda in her frilly dresses.
