Sew Crafty Friday



I've mentioned sewing dresses for my daughter's "Molly" (American Girl) doll. I decided to climb into the back of the attic and find her. Katherine's 23, so Molly has been an attic doll for quite a few years now. She was happy to get some sunshine. (Molly, not my daughter. I don't keep my daughter in an attic. That's where I kept my boys until they turned 18. JUST KIDDING!)

The second picture shows detail of the lace trim. Basically, you sew on the lace and then use very, very sharp scissors to remove fabric behind the lace.
BTW, before Molly went up into the attic, someone gave her a haircut. Poor girl--12 years in an attic with a lousy haircut...

Hi Clare,

I'm back from vacation and curious about what you were doing so here I am.

You did a great job on the dress, it is so cute.

What are you talking about living in the attic for twelve years with a lousy haircut.

I have been living in public for 65years with a bad haircut!!! LOL!!!:)
