From when Malea was born I've been debating what to do for her blessing dress. When Kaidrei was born her Grandma Nyman made an amazing dress for her to be blessed in. It will truly be an treasured keepsake for Kaidrei since it was made by her Grandma and has lace that her Great Grandmas made! So I wanted Malea to have a special dress too. I decided that I was going to make her a dress until I had an epiphany that I had my own blessing dress and Malea could be blessed in my dress and that would be special. So I dug through my keepsake box, found it, and didn't think much more about it since it is a 6 month size...until this morning when I tried it on.

My blessing dress is a shirt on Malea. This picture is with the dress unbuttoned and pulled down as far as I could stretch it! My initial thought was to just make bloomers and it would still work, but the dress is like a sweater so I'd need to find a lightweight cream sweater to even try that.

So right now, I'm sitting here in panic trying to decide if it is even feasible to make a dress in less than 2 weeks since we are blessing Malea on the 27th! It suddenly seems like there is so much to do and even less time to do it in!

What to do...what to do...???
