Project 957 Finished!

Well it sometimes feeels like there's 957 on the go!......Is there such a thing as crafting overload? I think I need a change, spring is comming so there will be gardening to do.She's finished, though not quite what I had in mind, she's a little too neat and tidy... I wonder what that says about me?


The dress is made from scraps of patchwork fabric, a small print works best. The lace is from The Ribbon Girl, I threaded it with seam binding in Oloroso ( Is that a sherry?)


And gathered some to add a frill.
I think I'll do another but try for the shabby grungy look....project 958!
