Distraught when her favorite dress, always worn on her favorite day (Tuesday) becomes too small to wear, the young heroine of this charming picture-book turns to her mother, and "Snip, Snip, Sew, Sew... New shirt, Hello!" This new garment soon becomes the young girl's favorite piece of clothing, always worn on her (new) favorite day, Wednesday. As time goes on, the erstwhile dress becomes smaller and smaller, transformed into a tank top, a skirt, a scarf, and a hair-bow. When even this is destroyed, a final use is made of the remnants of the beloved garment, enabling the girl to hold on to her memories...

I'm grateful to my friend Gundula for reviewing this sweet book, as I had initially passed it by, thinking it to be a fairly standard 'dressing up' story. There's nothing wrong with dressing-up stories, of course, when done right - children learn through imitation, after all, and many young people experiment by dressing up in their parents' clothing, or by wearing costumes of various kinds - but I somehow wasn't attracted to it. I'm glad that I read a review putting me right, however, as I Had a Favorite Dress turned out to be a charming tale of a girl and her mother, and their creative use of sewing to repurpose a beloved article of clothing, rather than just throwing it away. I appreciated both the frugality and artistry involved in the process being depicted in the story, and thought the accompanying artwork, done in watercolor, graphite, colored pencil, needle and thread, and digital collage, perfectly captured the sense of fun throughout. I also appreciated the fact that mother and daughter are African-American, but that this is not commented upon at all in text or artwork, as I think we need more lighthearted books featuring diverse characters. Recommended to anyone looking for fun and creative mother-daughter tales, or stories incorporating sewing-craft and clothing issues. ( )

33 months - Oh this is so going to be Olivia and I someday soon. She loves her tutus and I can just see her favorites slowly evolving into smaller and smaller fashion accessories as they get too small and/or become worse for wear. Very creative and cute idea. ( )

I can relate to this book because I have a dress that I love and I don't want to throw it out even thought I don't fit it anymore. The illustrator did a really good job with the illustration. Feels like the picture is in 3-D. I love how she loves her dress so much that she couldn't get rid of it so she made it into different piece of clothing she could. ( )

A young girl's mother reinvents her daughter's favorite dress into smaller pieces of clothing as she grows. From a new shirt to a tank top to a skirt to a scarf, to new socks and a hair bow, this young girl realizes that nothing lasts forever, but memories.

This book is about a girl who has a favorite dress and she wears it everyday. But her dress did not last so her mom would think about different ways to change her dress. This book supports personality and also supports how to solve problems.
