A friend on Flickr asked to see a picture of this outfit without the dolly's head cropped off.  So I tried the kind of shots one might see on a magazine cover or something of that ilk.

Hence the spammage.  Sorry, f-list.....


Started off an outfit for my BID, Maisie. A simple fitted bodice dress with a separate underskirt.   It is actually finished, but I'm so tired now, my hands are shaking too much to take a decent shot.

So here's a teaser.  As you can see, I haven't strayed too far away from purples yet.

Poplin is tough to sew by hand,  I managed to get the needle jammed into my finger. Not the sharp end, the eye end.   OW.   That was horrible.  But at least I'm using the sewing machine a bit more now. 

....And a thimble.
