Perhaps I was hasty....

in my quick dismissal of Born Yesterday, 1993 version.  I finished watching it last night, and it wasn't that bad.  Don't get me wrong, Melanie Griffith is still no Judy Holiday, but Don Johnson grows on you (goofy 90's hair and all), John Goodman is excellent and they actually stick to the original plot line for most of the movie.  There was a little part of me that was sure they had modernized things too much, but they really hadn't.  I was pleasantly surprised.  :)  


In sewing news, Sylvie's dress is almost completed!  It's all stitched together and hemmed and pressed and only awaiting 4 buttons and 4 buttonholes to be finished!   Sylvie tried it on a few minutes ago and looked darling in it.  She is so excited.  ;)  Every time I have made a dress for myself or one of the older girls she has asked me to please make her an "olden-day" dress too.  A girl after my own heart.  

Sorry about the blurry pic! I finished the hem with a zig-zag stitch and I really like the way it looks!  I'll take some pictures of Sylvie wearing the dress once it's finished.
