New Etsy Listing!

I made this recreation of Molly's Party Pinafore from an out-of-print American Girl pattern. I followed the directions exactly but had a very hard time figuring out how to attach the sash. I mulled over it in my mind for two days before doing the sensible thing and asking my mom how in the world I should go about attaching the silly thing, and, as is usually the case, Mamma knew exactly what to do. :-)

So TIP FOR TODAY: If you don't know, ask your mom. :-)

Anyway! I loved working with the pattern, especially the ruffles, which were unlike anything I have ever done yet!
Rebecca is such a lovely model! :-) She just seems to fit nicely in almost every era. :-)

Oh! How cute you did a great Job Elinor! I have always liked that dress from Molly's wordrobe!

Hope you are having a lovely day!


P.S. I have been wanting to see 'The Young Victoria' for a very long time now (or at least it seems like a very long time:) Any way, I was wondering if you could reveiw it here on your blog??? I really have liked, and agreed with your past movie reviews.

Actually, I haven't seen "The Young Victoria"...yet. :-( I've actually been meaning to ask my mom if we could watch it, because it looks really good!

As soon as I watch it, I will definitely post a review. Hopefully that will be soon! :-)
