Trying to add Shoulder Straps / Pink Sundress

In the spring I tried a "cold shoulder" pattern by Striped Swallow Designs. It turned out darling and the girls wear their shirts lots and lots. I wanted to make MLyons a dress to wear over her leotard to ballet and found this gorgeous pink. And then I started thinking that I might try to make it less "spaghetti" straps and more of a solid strap in case MLyons wanted to wear the dress to school.
So I looked at Striped Swallow Designs blog and some of the modifications that others had attempted and decided to try. I am not sure that I'm happy with the finish at the neck but other wise it turned out very cute and she has already worn is 3 or 4 times and I only finished it last Saturday.

purchasing fish food at Wild Wolf Brewery

Last week we ate at Wild Wold Brewery off 150 in Nelson County. Tim & Patrick like the brew(s) and the food was great (try the fish and chips) and there are things to keep the kids busy for a minute. In addition to feeding the gold fish there is a delightful "airplane" to play on and it kept our kids busy until their food came.

You did a great job on her little pink top. Looks very nice. Always fun to spend time with kiddos.
