Since Kate realized they had Stake Conference the first of May, we snagged their blessing date. Which means to all who may have known, I just don't think I'll get the blessing dress done in time. I haven't even gotten the lace yet (it has to be just right, which means I drive to Orem which hasn't happened, or get it online which hasn't happened either. I went to Babinski today and saw a darling simple on with bonnets on sale for $75, which is a steal compared to my fabric and lace and time, but none of the true heirloom "my mom made this" quality. Another I love is $155, with awesome smocking (my smocking is at least done!) and a darling bonnet, etc. And I worry that my seamstress skills just aren't up to the task and although Penelope will wear the dress for like an hour, I don't want it to be shabby for posterity. AK ok'd the purchase of a dress, but I am still grappling...or I can borrow Kate's (Amanda's). What do you think? Does it really matter? Will she really care (I know not now, but in 25 years!)?
