When my mother visited from Sweden at Christmas time she brought the dress with her to give to my daughter. Freya loves it but it's still a little long for her. Spot the difference...

Same dress - 30 years apart
When I was about six or seven we had a crafty neighbour/friend that would sometimes make us things. One of my favourites was this dress that she made out of an adult size skirt - she just added some lace and a bit of ribbon and i think, for the sleeves she used a bit of an old curtain! I wore it on my last day of Year 1 and I even remember how I felt back then. I really felt so lovely in my blue dress. I know the quality of the photo makes it look like I was born in the 1920s!
