The French (Seam) Dress

                                      Une fois, j'ai fait une robe.
                                                         Once, I made a dress.



     Il y avait des coutures à l'intérieur. 
          It had French seams on the inside.


Et de jolies
 choses bizarres comme 
des boutons de coeur  et entrées de serrure et d'un corsage 
doublé.  Parce que les bébés petits apprécient ce genre de chose. Je vous assure.
    And silly, pretty things like heart buttons and keyholes and a lined bodice. 
Because little babies appreciate that sort of thing. 
I assure you.


                              Il avait la dentelle et des rubans               It had lace and layers
                                      et des couches abruptes,                       and sheer ribbons,
                                  l'image de la haute couture.             the picture of haute couture.


   Et une grosse fleur
             pour cacher son visage au cas où elle ne voit rien laid. Parfait.
           And a big flower to hide her face in case she sees anything ugly. 
                                                                                                                    Perfect.

    Thanks for the compliment! I really hope I have girls someday, too, to dress up and do the hair of, but for now I'm super glad I'm kid (and stress)-free. :)
