Middle School Dance

Emmie had a middle school dance to go to tonight, and it was semi formal in its dress code, so I got lucky and got to make her a new dress! (the pictures were taken at night in our apartment building lobby, so they aren’t great) Emmie was really excited about this fabric, (we got…
