Making clothes for little girls is a joy. First of all they love to try it on over and over, pins and all, which makes for an easy and great fit. Secondly, they get so excited to have something new to wear. This was Friday when I finished it, and Olive put it on, twirled 'round twice and wanted to go to church. She will often change her clothes on a whim, enter the room and ask, "What you think?" with a raised brow, knowing eye, and proceed to model her ensemble. She has been known to awake the next morning in a changed and mismatched outfit, but still in her crib....hmmmm. This dress has been entered in a sewing contest, and I'm hoping the cuteness of the mannequin will earn me extra points. What you think?
