I also found a dress that was worn by my oldest daughter about 26 years ago. Each of my daughters had a matching dress and I saved one of them. When I found it again I realized that my granddaughter could wear it. However, I needed to lengthen it a bit since dresses were much shorter then. It looks like this will fit for a year or two! The old hemline left a mark so I did some embroidery to match the smocking on top. It turned out great. However, my granddaughter was tired of posing, I guess.
I couldn't send these to my granddaughter without also sending something to her brothers so I made hero shirts. I designed logos for them and printed them onto iron on transfer paper then applied them to the t-shirts. Then I made capes out of old table topper fabric pieces that were used at their mother's wedding reception. I used Velcro to attach the capes but I should have just made ties to tie them on. The weight of the capes pulled on the shoulders of the t-shirt.
I also have also discovered some wonderful additions to oatmeal cookies. Try adding some coconut, dried tart cherries ( I used Dried Pitted Tart Montgomerency Cherries from Trader Joes.), almond extract instead of vanilla and chocolate chips. YUM!!!!!!!!
