Since taking off her school uniform a week ago, Miss Jazzy has been wearing a frou-frou, tulle covered princess dress every day. The same dress day in and day out. She loves it. Its been the uniform she wears when she's not wearing her uniform.
But last night at a farmers' market in Melbourne, the princess dress suffered some major rips and tears and this morning she stayed dressed in her dressing gown and the dress lay in a heap where she left it last night.
This morning I began the important task of making her a dress she would love just as much but would perhaps be a bit sturdier for the life of a princess who lives on a farm.
I had strict instructions of course: It has to twirl and whirl and be great for dancing she said. It has to tie up at the back with a sash and be long enough to be girly but short enough not to get in the way and it has to be colourful.
I'm sure she meant pinks and purples but denim with red is my favourite colour combination right now and she doesn't seem to mind at all.
So far, so good but the real test will come tomorrow morning.
And so dear readers, we here at Foxs Lane would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a wonderful, merry, love filled weekend whether it be Christmas or any other day of the week for you.
Much love, XX
