Happy Mother's Day!

 Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there.  Every day is your day, but hopefully today will be a special day for all of you.  Often times the time and energy you put into being great mothers go unnoticed, or are unappreciated.  Know this day, that it takes a special person to do what you do, and you are that special person!

"Hi guys.  Vanessa here, and I have my special godson here with me today.  I just can't believe how much he has grown in the past five years.  Time really flies."  (Vanessa)

"Hi sweetie.  It's so good to see you.  It's been crazy trying to get time with you with all that is going on in your life.  So I invited you here to share all your great news."  (Vanessa)
"Well, I dressed the part for the first piece of news.  As of May, 2016, I am a graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in Communications."  (Quentin)
"Congratulations!!!  You know I am ecstatic to hear that."  (Vanessa)  

"Let me give you a big hug for that accomplishment.  That is so awesome."  (Vanessa)

"I happen to know you have even more exciting news to share than that."  (Vanessa)
"Yes.  Well, I got picked up as a free agent in the 2016 NFL Draft to play with the Philadelphia Eagles."  (Quentin)

"Did you guys hear that?  My godson will be playing in the NFL!  We are all extremely excited.  I'm mostly excited because he worked so hard to realize this dream, and it always feels great when hard work pays off."  (Vanessa)

"I love you so much.  I know you have to get out of here, because you are flying to Philadelphia today to get started.  I'm coming up there to see you play soon as humanly possible."  (Vanessa)
"Thanks.  I love you, too."  (Quentin)

"Be careful and watch out for all those gold diggers."  (Vanessa)

A thank you to friends and family from Quentin.

The billboard they put up in his hometown of Rochester, NY. 

"That was fun.  I always love seeing Quentin.  Now before I leave and go enjoy the Mother's Day dinner my husband and kids are attempting to cook, I promised Vanessa I would get pictures taken of Dasia's new dress."  (Vanessa)

"So without further ado...."  (Vanessa)

"Hello Ms. Dasia.  Come on in and let's chat for a second."  (Vanessa)

"Happy Mother's Day to you.  How are you?"  (Vanessa)
"Thank you,  Happy Mother's Day to you as well.  I must say, I am doing great.  I have no complaints."  (Dasia)

"That's always nice to hear.  We aren't going to keep you here long.  I agreed to get some photos of your new dress.  It's very pretty.  I love the contrast."  (Vanessa)
"Thanks.  It's so comfortable."  (Dasia)
"You know all the ladies here in town want to know the secret to getting custom made outfits.  Care to enlighten us?"  (Vanessa)
"There really is no secret.  It's all about supply and demand.  You skinny girls have so many off the rack options, that it's just not worth it to spend the time making you custom pieces."  (Dasia)
"Sort of discouraging to hear, but I guess I understand.  We skinny girls do have a ton of clothes around here.  I guess if we got together and organized it all, we would be surprised at all the pieces we have already.  (pause)  But let's get these pictures taken, so you can go and enjoy the rest of your special day."  (Vanessa)

This is the sample dress.  I need to tweak that neckline.  This is done in knit fabrics.  It is the exact same style as the denim dress with the topstitching  (shown below).

Same princess style dress in denim with topstitching along the princess seams.



  1. Congratulations to you, Quentin and the entire family on his rise to stardom! What an accomplishment!

    Dasia is right, it is easy to buy for the skinny girls. She is lucky to get such wonderful items made just for her. This dress is beautiful.

  3. Love how you can use your dolls to share news and real life events!

    LOL @ "Watch out for all those gold diggers."

    1. Muff - You know that gold diggers are already lined up. Luckily my godson has such a sweet soul. I'm hoping he can stay grounded through all the craziness.

  4. Congratulations on your godson's success. I know you must be proud!!! Dasia's dress is quite lovely and she wears it very well. Hope you had a glorious Mother's Day.

    1. april - Thanks. My godson is one of the sweetest people I know, which says alot considering how self centered some of the youth are today. I'm even more proud of the person he became. The football contract is icing on the cake. I hope your Mother's Day was wonderful.

  5. Congratulations to your godson! I also love Dasia's dress, very classy. If you did the same design for curvy Barbie I would be interested in getting one.


    1. monstercrafts - Thanks! We are all so proud of him. My curvy Barbie is here waiting for me to make some patterns for her. Poor thing.

  6. Happy (God) Mother's Day!

  14. Congrats to Quentin! I sent you a Facebook message around that time ;-) I was actually watching the drafts. Now I have several football teams I'm going to be watching. I was following some out of Ohio and Clemson. It'll be exciting to see them all. Seems like someone from Ohio is going to the Eagles as well but I already forgot.

    1. Kenya - Yes, just as I was getting ready to go to FB to see if he had posted anything, I saw your message. It's so funny to see you following football now. I remember when....
