Sis Boom for School

One of my nieces starts kindergarten tomorrow. Such a big milestone! She’s so excited, especially about riding the bus to school.

She’s been home with her mom up until now, so it’s going to be a big change for her. I wanted to make the transition a little more special for her, so I stitched up this dress and sent it to her.

It’s another Round Neck Dress, but this time I used some pretty Mary Trellis fabric from the Sis Boom Bell Bottoms line by Jennifer Paganelli, accented with one of my favorite polka dots. I wanted something a little summery but a little fall-ish, too, since she lives up yonder where they actually have fall before November. (Heck, I think they can even have snow by November!)

I’m a little nervous about the fit, since she’s about the size of a third grader (that’s what you get with two tall parents). Fingers crossed!

  1. The collar on this is so unusual and darling–I bet it took some time to get the lay of the fabric right with the polka dots–your niece will love it!

    I’ll have to look for the Fels Naptha (sp?)–I’m not familiar with it, but would love to add another goodie to my arsenal of laundry weaponry! ;o)
    Blessings!

  2. It’s really cute! I recall the feeling of making something for a niece, I’m making things for mine all the time, and she’s only 1 year old. Hooray for aunties!
