She did love being dressed up. She loved the sound the taffeta made when she would move so she kept kicking her feet and waving her arms. It was really cute.
That's so cute - my daughters loved the "whooshing" sound of taffeta and silk too. And they always adored dresses with long full skirts. They would twirl around until they were dizzy. When I was a foster mother, I would often have 3 or 4 little girls all around the same age. I loved making each of them matching dresses in different colors and then watch them become a twirling rainbow of color dancing around the house!
Oh yes, hot glue glitter. It is such a mess on the iron. And it kills your sewing machine needles! It's almost as bad as sewing with sequined fabric!
