She has eyes under that fringe!
But she can't seem to make up her mind.
She has been telling me she wants to
grow out her bangs and have her
hair like Mommy and Dida.
But she refuses to wear clips or headbands
to keep her hair out of her face.
However today she finally told me
she wants me to trim her bangs tonight.
And the dress,
Well, at least she is wearing it and
not complaining now!!
When she first saw the dress
the other day,
she insisted it was a nightgown.
I can't say much for the weirdness of
Not one turned out well and
she was SO OVER posing when it started to rain.
The print is called "Fairy Catmother"
and it is a lovely soft cotton knit
that took me forever to find
when I finally bought it
And then I hoarded it for a super long time,
before Ahnalin was finally able to convince me to
cut into it and sew it up.
I used an old Butterick pattern, Fast & Easy 3316,
and changed the back, removing the placket.
Then I shortened the sleeve, and removed
the seam allowances for the neckline,
hem and sleeve hems.
I finished the neckline and hems with Fold Over Elastic,
which is my favorite way to finish knits.
I also added a ruched ribbon to the front.
Finally, a decent photo of Ahnalin,
however I did not notice the drainpipe
in the background until I uploaded it!
And the picture of the fabric.......
I just noticed that she already got
a little bit of chocolate on it!
But because it is actually, really raining now,
I am calling it good and being done with it!
Ey Yi Yi!
Can I say that it has been
"one of THOSE weeks"???
