Hi, I’m Helen. I made my daughter a Nordic style dress when she was ten years old and more recently made my doll, Louise, a dress, as well.
My daughter’s dress was made for a heritage day at school when we lived in south Florida. The white blouse was purchased and is long gone. My two grand-daughters are now getting to this age and I want them to wear this dress for a picture reminiscent of their aunt’s. Louise wanted to join in the fun so I indulged her!
