The Orange Princess

This princess almost made me cry. 
No, not because she's shootin' me this eerie menacing look....LOL! 
But, look how grown up she is!

This is the first Halloween that Samantha has actualy had interest in what she would dress up as.
When I posed the question, "What do you want to be for Halloween?"
I shuddered cringed cried waved my fist in the air smiled when she replied,
"A princess"
"Well, what color princess would you like to be?"


Now, that I could live with!
And I knew just how I was gonna make that happen.
You see, when I was a Junior in high school, I wanted an orange dress....since my mother could sew anything, I designed a little something, and she whipped it up.
It just so happens she still had it in one of her closets at home:
That was what it looked like just 36 hours ago....

Now, the CIRCLE of LIFE has brought it here:
I followed a pattern and everything!
And didn't need to use anything else but my old dress for the material.
(Well, except for that trim)

I sure do hope I can get better pictures of Sam in it this weekend! 
These were the best shots I could get in a classroom full of 3 and 4 year olds, while I was trying to keep Cashton out of trouble!

Oh, did I mention, this was the dress I went to my Junior Prom in.....and my date was: Randizzle, himself!
