new haircut, new dress
Her hair was getting a bit straggly, knotting literally overnight into huge whorls (I liken her hair to velcro). Luckily I am a hairdresser (not) - after 20 minutes of bobbing up and down and brushing it a thousand times to uncover more long pieces to snip Lucy is now fresh and ready for Spring.
I made her this cotton jersey sleeveless dress too, to go with the new hair. She won't take it off, nor layer it. We tried countless cardigans (it's not exactly warm here yet) but no sooner than one was on and looking good she'd whip it off. The detail on the front is Liberty cotton prints, with rolled-hem edges (nice finish but more time consuming than overlocking). She is happy, so I am happy. I know I should have been making Summer things for the shop before now but I really couldn't get myself motivated to with the low temperatures. How business-minded am I! Obviously a bit too laid back.
