The stash busting continues in these parts. A fat quarter of some cherry material and a load of green cotton homespun that I bought with the intention of making surgical dress-ups. I did make some doctors dress-up for the mob ages ago but still had a handsome amount left over. Finally it has been used up. Managed to use up some buttons and small pieces of lace from the stash too. Feeling good about using things and wondering why I “save” them in the first place.
The dress is made using an Ottobre pattern, the same pattern I used to make her second birthday dress. It seems like a lifetime ago and yet only yesterday. How can that be?
At five years old my little M. is perfecting her “happy hands” pose! And those pink ballet flats, worn out and almost out grown – she prances and dances and spins and twirls her way through the day. Happy.
