Lucille is all ready for a new spring wardrobe so I made a few clothes for her and then was enjoying fiddling with tiny bits of fabric so much that I made a few more which I put up in my other Etsy shop.
I am noticing the passage of the years though. I now find it much harder to thread a needle or to work on dark fabric; these old eyes aren't what they were. The black and white dress was a particular challenge as it's thin, silky fabric made me decide to hand sew it rather than risk my machine chewing it up. But that black was not easy I tell ya! Still I like the super cute result so it was worth it.
