She was wearing the dress I made for her. The pattern warns to make the dress from wool, but I went ahead and made it in cotton anyway, it was the right colour from my stash!So I wasn’t super surprised to see that there were problems with the bodice. But I was surprised by just how much it was stretching, and how easy it was for her to ‘get out of her dress’ from the top down.
Easily fixed I pronounced, if I could just borrow the dress back. Niece M went home in her stockings!
Two goes at the attached i-cord to the neckline (the first attempt made the head hole too small to get over her head). And hopefully this has now solved the issue. Niece M only likes wearing dresses, I know where she’s coming from. I’m thinking maybe a rainbow dress for Christmas perhaps?
There’s still a long way to go.
And I’ve got the wheel out and I’ve been doing some overdue plying of some Southern Cross Fibre club fibre.
And this little bit are the odds and sods to empty the little bits off my bobbins…
Because I have so much to get through. How about you?
