This one would remind her of my kindergarten days. The nuns said we could wear anything as long as it was in gingham. Mom had fun buying the checked fabrics in all colours and getting her tailor to make me cute little dresses in all permutation she could think of.
I was sold the moment I saw the gigantic corsage(!) near the hem but even in the largest kiddie size, the dress is a tad too short so it'll be worn as a flowy calf-length skirt with a thick smocked waistband (what would be the bodice on a 14-year-old).
Both of them would love me this drop-waist dress in eyelet embroidery cotton in my favourite green.
The kids sure have it good these days. So many pwetty dresses that can be bought off the racks! And adults who refuses to grow up get to reap the benefits.
