Blue Sunday

On the 5th of June, Elowyn will be turning one year old! To commemorate the occasion I bought her this absolutely precious 1940s blue dress at an antique store.  My goal is to buy her a "new" vintage dress each birthday and then record each year with a series of photos.  She's at the age that sitting still and posing for a photo are remarkably difficult.  We had a couple of wardrobe malfunctions while I tried to capture a few cute shots.  Her knees caught the skirt of the dress while she was speed crawling towards me, and tore the seam of her dress! Then I tried to put on the bonnet (she hates hats, headbands, etc) and she tugged it off with such gusto that the ribbon tie ripped off! What a little stinker!  Hopefully at age two, she'll allow me to put on a hat.
Ruffle sleeves!
Button detail at the waist

Lace collar and bodice

The perfect pose!
