I'm struggling to grow past Mama Bear protectiveness and onto sensible, guiding-hand parenting. It's probably a bit like trying to navigate the path between the sweet, open innocence of everybody-loves-me infancy and the reality of learning to get along with people. We're both feeling a bit bewildered and out of our depth here.
The sun-smart cap sleeves are staying. And I have another skirt variation or two to try before I settle on one in particular.
Edited to add: My girl only likes LONG dresses, preferably with a bit (or a lot) of twirl. She somehow climbs trees in them, bows and volume of fabric and all. I won't be making a short version for her because it won't be worn, so I'll be looking for pattern-testers (at some point soon) who want to try that variation for me.
It's a work in progress... as we all are.
*Sorry - I cut the selvedge off and forgot where I bought the fabric.
So.... any thoughts on age-appropriate dresses for 5-10 year olds...?
