Chevron Gracie Dress in Gray, White, and Aqua

 I made this dress this week for Kids Clothes Week.  I LOVE chevron and I LOVE how it turned out.
 My daughter was a great model today.  The dress pattern is the Gracie Dress by Mama Stellato.  I've made this dress a few times before and love it.  This is a 5T and the biggest size so I'll make a few more for my daughter before she gets too big.  But I added some aqua trim that I had on hand to spice it up.  I'm loving the gray, white, and aqua combo.
 I made the headband awhile ago out of felt and elastic.  So easy and fun to make.
 Back closes with a covered button that is so simple to make.  All in all a great pattern and I think it will be a favorite for the summer and in spring/fall with leggings.
I'm loving her modeling poses these days.  So funny!

Teacher appreciation week is right around the corner and also the end of school!  Craftaholics Anonymous has a WONDERFUL list of do's and don'ts from teachers that's really worth reading so you can get your teacher something that they will love.  They all say no more mugs, lotions, homemade treats please!  It was very interesting to read.  Teachers LOVE gift cards!
