Awww...I loved this!

Well done,
A well written emotional homey story.
Is it "She sit down" or "She sat down"? Also, was one lip puckered or two lips puckered as she stirred her oatmeal?

I liked the thoughtfulness of the mother and then her creativeness of her dress making skill. (This isn't taught anymore in school.)

Keep writing homey stories like this.
That was a lovely story. I felt the tension in the mother trying to make ends meet and still fulfil her daughter's wish. I couldn't see how it would work - but you had a very creative solution.
A well written story to remind us how something so simple to remedy can bring happinsss and joy to a child in a world filled with disappointments.
