Be Practical and Stylish | Meg's Graduation Dress

     Meg graduated last March 17. Yes I don't have a preschooler anymore. I feel old. (Arte mode) Anyway, the school gave the reminders about their Graduation three days before the event. 3 days ha. It was a Thursday and syempre I had work. The only time I can buy the things needed is Friday. Actually, I had this instinct they would require the kids to wear a Sunday dress but I decided not to buy muna. Buti na lang I didn't because she needs to wear a Sunday dress in pastel color and a closed shoes. I was thinking Sunday dress lang, the same thing they wore during their Moppets in Motion.

     I spent the whole morning before work and my whole evening after work looking for a dress that is not so formal but is perfect for a Graduation ceremony. I was able to find dresses, but mostly white and some naman look very casual lang plus ang mamahal! Not that I wanted a super bonggang dress, but I prefer something like the pictures below.

      Pretty diba? Then I remembered she had a flower girl dress which I can let the modista (seamstress) to alter. Ang tanong, kaya pa ba with the time? Here's the flower girl dress.
     The plan is to cut the dress just a few inches below the knee and add on red ribbons or beads since she will be wearing black shoes with red ribbon. And dahh-rannn!...
o diba bongga na?

Promise naiiyak ako, big girl na talaga si Meg
the JUMP shot!
pa extra ha hehe
O diba you can really save a lot of money when you think of how to cut down your expenses. Hindi biro ang magpa-aral ha. In the sense na you will not just consider the tuition but also the everyday expenses plus the projects, school field trips, etc. You should learn how to prioritize without sacrificing something else. Like the dress, we can be creative and think of ideas. We can be stylish and use our imagination (sabi nga ni Barney) hehe...

  1. What a neat trick Irene! Tristen also have a flower girl dress (which is slowly accumulating dusts being stored in the closet) and I'm going to have it altered so she can wear it again for a different occasion. Brilliant!

  2. What a bright idea sis! The graduation dress looks fab!! :)

  3. Nice idea Mommy! I hope I can do the same for my little boy so he won't appear to be wearing the same clothes!

  4. That's so nice! What a great idea to save money indeed. Naku I need to double my effort at sabay ang aking babies mag aaral. Ouch sakit sa bulsa ngaun pa lang eh.

    1. True dear. Ang gastos, enrollment na naman. hehe...

  5. Cute!!! Meg looks so lady-like. Malaki na mga babies natin :)

  6. Clap! Clap! Ang galing, nag-iba talaga yung itsura nung gown ah. Hehe. I like it better nga nung ni-cut :) Neat! Good job, mommy.

  7. Wow! Ang galing!!!:D Sino'ng mag-aakala na dating pang-abay ang suot ni Meg nung graduation niya noh? Very good, mommy!!! :D

  8. Good job, mommy! Meg really looked happy with her dress. Very practical ang ginawa mo. Usually kasi one time use lang ang pang-abay. Buti napakinabangan pa ulit. Congrats Meg!

  9. Great job on the dress! Yan ang resourceful Mommy!
