My Little Hula Girl

Black and White Wednesday

This winter, when I was dreaming of warmth and sunshine, I found a couple of yards of Alexander Henry tropical fabric that I fell in love with...

Emma's Patsy (my MIL) was kind enough to "whip up" a fabulous little sundress for Miss Emma using these two fabrics. It is just adorable.

The first time Emma wore her Hula Girl dress, I talked her into letting me snap some photos...

What a darling dress and cute girl!

Lucky...my thoughts exactly! Can we please trade MILs? Nah, I wouldn't do that to you!! Emma is the perfect little hula girl model!

That is great fabric! I love that pattern. Your MIL did a great job with all of the polka dotted piping... if I am seeing it right. Your Emma reminds me of my youngest daughter when she was that age, she is now 14. :(

Sorry for leaving two comments in a row. I didn't see an email address. Our beach house IS at Ocean Isle. We love it there. I did feel like I should mention it on my blog right now for personal reasons even though I have mentioned OIB many times before. It is a long story. I have not been to Oak Island in a very long time. I know it has probably changed so much, just like all of the beaches in that area. loodom@nc.rr.com
