Ella saw a dress she wanted at The Children's Place*. I talked her out of the dress by distracting her with a t-shirt that has a kitten with a mustache.
This is where I'd insert a picture of the dress,

with a dark blue chambray skirt attached.
Meanwhile, in the back of my mind I remembered a pin that I had saved to my Patriotic board on Pinterest.

a baseball or an apple pie.
- Have your child paint a t-shirt
- While it is drying, make a skirt.
- Sew the twain together at the waist, adding elastic for better fit.
- Post to your blog.
Happy Independence Day to all you Homemaker-Americans!
