The dress is actually the Simplicity 4206 shirt, lengthened to a dress, like I usually make. Then I added a little ruffle along the bottom edge. It kind of looks like a nightgown. I made her a size four (she is 4 1/2), but it seems big on her, even the elastic around the neck. I figure she'll have it for this summer and next summer.

Thank you for your concern last week while I was sick. I am happy to say that I think (and hope and pray) that my final fever broke early this morning. I went to bed with a temperature of 101.9 and rising. I awoke in a bed of sweat. I think it's gone. It's been a long week. My doctor ran some tests, including Lyme disease and fifth disease. I do not have any results yet. (She said if I am still sick this week, she will treat me with the three weeks of antibiotics for Lymes before it goes into "the next stage," just to be safe.)
