blue polka dot blouse

when i saw christy's dress in the donation pile, i thought "ooh maybe i can squeeze in to that." yea, squeezing in to anything isn't the best idea, so the dress was donated to the matilda cause. because it was already lined, i cut both the lining and the fabric out of the pattern pieces and then saved the original dress hem (and some extra time). for interest i made a front panel with the same zig zag stitch.

Matilda is the most stylish girl around. I think it's pretty clear what you need to do as a part-time job: sell your brilliant baby clothes!! Because half the time you use Sam's old shirts and kitchen cloths and stuff, it wouldn't even cost much money to start with!

Love you, can't wait to see you in October.
