The dress was a success! Though it was not my intention for Madeline to wear it today, or anytime soon for that matter as it is at least one size too big, she saw it hanging in her closet and HAD to put it on. My vanity gave in, she decided it is a dancing dress, I grabbed my camera, the dress has a good twirl.
Isn't she such a doll! Promptly after dancing she got on her sit-n-scoot car thingy and said "bye-bye, I'm going to science club" and scooted around the corner. I think she picked that one up from the Brady Bunch.
