Each year, while my girls were little, I would make a group of Birthday Dresses for my 2 girls and their 2 friends. I would start with A's birthday since she was first for the year - in January. I would design 4 matching, yet not identical, dresses that each of the 4 girls would wear to each others' birthday parties throughout the year. This was E's 6th birthday in June 1998.
