I’m only a month late with this city-inspired post, but in my defense, this was a dress I made for a friend’s little girl as a surprise for her daddy’s graduation ceremony, which didn’t happen until May 5, though I had made the dress in time for this challenge!
Daddy’s school colors are those of Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. So that’s the city that inspired this little number.
The bittersweet part of this is that this little girl’s daddy got a teaching job in Florida, so our good friends will be moving this summer to the other peninsular state of the US. We will miss them very much.
