Friends, let me preface this post by saying that I would never say anything intentionally to offend.
But can we talk about Simplicity's long-lived Daisy Kingdom pattern line for girls? I'm sorry, but to me, these patterns look like a cross between Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and the ugliest 80's bridesmaid dresses ever. Freakish.
(Zillions more can be found here.)
Do little girls actually go for these dresses? (The pantaloon patterns are worse.)
The mind reels and the teeth ache.
I don't get the Daisy Kingdom aesthetic at all. I mean, I've always enjoyed Shirley Temple and Margaret O'Brien dolled up in ruffles, but Daisy Kingdom: what am I missing?
Is there a children's book series or movie that could explain it all? Where did this thing come from (and how do we get rid of it)?
Okay, readers, enough ranting. Do you or don't you dig the Daisy Kingdom look? If you don't, does a daughter, sister, or grandmother you know love it? Were you ever dressed this way???
Daisy Kingdom little girl dress patterns -- YEA or NAY?
