Before the Trek

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Someone is pretty excited for the trek.  She really wanted a dress over the idea of  a skirt and shirt, which was my idea.  We wen to the pattern store and this is what we came away with.  With  my limited sewing skills and a pattern that didn’t really come in her sized, either too big or much too small.  It really was a miracle it fits.  (Well actually the pattern has draw strings everywhere, so it actually can fit various sizes, but I was worried since we didn’t have a correct size for her.  Any way thanks to You Tube videos and some advice from a friend it came together.  Phewwwwww, what a relief.  

Sad thing is after spending 3 days in this, she will not want to ever wear it again.




No she is not going barefoot.


I love her water bottle holder, we bought one for each family member before our trip to Yellowstone.  So glad we still have them.  I think it will come in handy.
