Overkill.


When the kids and I were visiting my family in Michigan, I had the chance to go shopping (ALONE!!! SKIP SKIP JOY JOY!) at a fabric store that had a closing sale.  I got several cute fabrics to sew things for the girls (poor boys, there just isn't much out there for them).

I had such high hopes for this fabric.  It has such wonderful colors (very Dutch) and looked so vintage.

I had some yellow gingham fabric in my stash that I thought would make the perfect trim, but unfortunately, I fell victim to my usual designing problem, knowing when to stop

Oh no, trim wasn't enough. I had to add rickrack. 
 

And white lace.

 And more white lace.  LOTS of lace.

I think if I'd just stopped with the yellow trim it would have been fine.  Unfortunately, I didn't, and even the adorable baby inside the dress isn't enough to save this fashion disaster.

"I think you're clearly underestimating my cuteness power, Mom".

"On the other hand, this is a rather appalling thing to have to wear . . . "
