What she thought of her gift and other updates
She loved it! And I love it when I get it right!
All last week was bright and beautiful here. Thursday and Friday were even warm enough to get rid of the bulky winter jackets and toss on any old sweatshirt out of the closet. Heaven.
Of course, it was the kind of weather that led a certain seven year old girl to believe it was spring. She is sorely disappointed this week at the gray skies, pouring rain and 35 degree temperatures. As a matter of fact, no indoor activity will calm the case of spring fever those sunny skies left her with.
I decided that it was the perfect weather to sit at the sewing machine, and what better thing to entertain a little girl than an afternoon making Barbie clothes. I got my very own Barbie, a pattern for Barbie clothes and some cute fabric for Christmas. I end up with so many tiny little scraps from my creations that I can't bear to throw away, so I was absolutely thrilled with the prospect of making cute little doll dresses from them.
I made one. My Barbie is apparently too bootylicious(and bustylicious)for my pattern. At least I can use it as a base and enlarge it...still though, it is mildly disappointing that it didn't work without alterations.
