That's a pretty thing! Ay usual, you outdid yourself; all is so neat and yet
efficiently done. I'd like one of those, too; just for 'dressing up for
fun'! Too bad there isn't an adult-sized version available. ;-)

There are similar adult sized patterns about, and it wouldn't be hard to
draft one up.  I'll see what I can find.

I'm still trying to get to the post office, by the way.  Fibro, half
term, and a visit to the Frozen North have intervened, but I'll get
there ASAP.

Oh, and I can't wait to see your latest crazy idea!  I could end up
using both: one for mundane clothing and one for historical stuff!

Well, if it isn't too much of a bother... ;-)

Oh Kate, we really need to talk about that dress... Perhaps not on the
group, but we really need to, and best before you go to the P.O. I hope that
your Fibro is better now, it must be as nasty as regular migraines (well,
what else do I have to compare things with, sorry.)

I hope I'll be able to send it soon, I'm nearly there, just a little bit of
digital cleaning up, and then it'll be off to you. If you like to use both,
why not, I think it'll be clear that they represent the same craftsperson,
you'll see. Perhaps you let on who made them for you, one never knows where
it might lead. (I might actually get a life one day, if DD ever grows up).
;-)

Oh, that reminds me: Would it be possible for you to say a word or two about
the Elna Supermatic (

)
? The offer ended but still, there might be another one. You might open a
new thread on this...

Well, I'm off to take our little grumpy princess to bed. Been one hell of a
day, I can tell you, but then you've BTDT. ;-)

That's just lovely, Kate!!  The skirt lies beautifully and the boning made a
huge difference in the bodice.  Very smooth.  Was so pretty, I wanted to
pet it. ;)

Thank you.  I *do* keep going and fidgetting with it, I have to admit.
It'll look even better with a chemise under it...

Very nice!  I particularly like the color choice and the little pleats.
  My school uniform was that color in high school and I liked it.

The hand stitching on the shoulders is nice and neat.  I avoid hand
stitching like the plague.

Thank you.  The pleats were a bit of a bear to do, but went OK once I
got them all going the right ways round!  :D

I taught in a school that had a very similar green for their uniform.  I
always thought it looked good.

I find it very theraputic, when my hands can stand it.  Sometimes the
fibro makes hand stitching difficult.  This time it just went really nicely.

I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed seeing the Bernina too. It is the
same color as my 530.

That's delightful, Kate!  What a wonderful house and grounds, and how
fun it would be for youngsters to play dress-up there.
