back to school

This is a first in a series of posts about getting ready for back to school. I truly love this time of year. And I also think that being a homeschool mom, I get to enjoy preparing for the upcoming school year, just as much as the students do.

Most of my preparation comes by way of handmade lovelies. Oh, sure, I organized our books and pencils, but I'm talking about what every school girl truly needs.

The girls each got a new dress, especially designed for back to school. A little A-line tunic, to wear as a short dress, or over jeans. I think of it as a ruffle vehicle (a garment whose main purpose is to hold ruffles). Ginger's is made from a recycled tablecloth.

Ruby's tunic certainly fits her personality. Clean, tidy, fashionable, with a bit of rascal thrown in. It's a brown polka dot corduroy which is perfect for the season.

Stay tuned for more back to school must haves that I have been preparing for my students.
