Christmas is about excess isn't it?

Only explanation for why I might make a gold silk dress for a grubby six year old (and no it isn't made for a full forward - that's an adult size hanger making those super sleeves)

With complimentary cream silk petticoat of course.

And Shula had a hand in it too, with the giving of all the silk bits and so on. I'm hiding it away from snooping eyes (she is so a snooper) to be revealed with a flourish on Christmas day.

The delight will be enormous until she sees the pink and floral boogie board and then it will be just another thing she has to put away when the washing is done. Sigh.

This is gorgeous! Well done! Love the gold silk. Was it a bugger to sew? Can't wait to hear how it is received.

Beautiful dress. What a lucky girl!

Splendid. She can wear it when not using the boogie board. Which will be every day this cool summer. And swanning around in silk is super, it's warm in cool weather, and cool in the hot weather. Such a versatile dress it'll be.

I just laughed out loud.
