I little while back I took Emily to my favorite local sewing/quilting shop and let her pick out one fabric. She's getting a bit picky so if I'm buying anything new I like to have her along for the ride. Shocking in a sea of lovely flowers, sweat girly prints, and even her beloved polk a dots she picked a blue sea life print with sharks, whales, octopuses, and all sorts of other fish. Um OK so just when I think I've got the little bugger figured out she throws me a total curve ball. Well sort of at least seeing as while I'm typing this she's insisting that a sleeveless polk a dot tunic will be fine today even though we are in the midst of a cold snap.
Oliver and S Croquet Dress. It was in my stocking this Christmas and as you may or may not recall one of my goals for this year it to use all of my Oliver and S patterns. I've used quite a few of them this spring and let me tell you that makes for some relaxing sewing. The directions are always good, the pieces fit together, and as long as I make the elastic tighter Emily is pretty much a perfect size 5. Her waist is a little smaller so I have to tighten the elastic.
