I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn is an adorable story about a girl with a favorite dress that she wears every Tuesday, her favorite day of the week. But she grows, as all kids do, and soon her favorite dress doesn't fit anymore.
The illustrations are by Julia Denos and they are gorgeous. The watercolors mixed with some collage elements really make the story pop.
This book is a big, big favorite over here. It teaches days of the week, calming down in the face of wardrobe catastrophe, sewing appreciation and showing some love for your hard-working, crafty mom. Seriously, what mom doesn't like a book that makes her feel like a superhero for sewing?
I couldn't believe it when I held up some leftover Pearl Bracelet fabric from my paper pieced sewing machine and it was a perfect match to the illustration!
Only 3 left to go, and then I can move onto the back! Or maybe I'll just skip to the back to shake things up a bit...
