There were a lot of oohs and ahhs from the small group of women in Sharon’s living room. “I didn’t know you could sew so well,” one of the women said.
“Did you follow a pattern?” another woman asked.
“How long did it take you to make the dress?” a third woman asked.
“Yes, I followed a pattern, but not being a seamstress, I felt like I was working my way through a complicated maze,” Sharon admitted. “But once I figured it out, it actually came together very quickly.”
“Mommy,” Adele said, “I have to go to the bathroom. Can you take off my princess dress?”
“Of course, sweetie,” Sharon said, “but first take a curtsy so that your subjects can exalt your presence, your royal highness.”
That was even a bit much for four year old Adele, who did an exaggerated eye roll while dutifully performing a curtsy for her Mom’s friends.
