backing, tacking


I signed on.
I was resistant.
I struggled with the patterns.
I gave up.
I drew my own.
I hated the body.
I redid it.
I got neurotic about her face.
I finally made her a lined dress.
I gave her a bouquet of flowers and a necklace of buttons.

I'm headed to the post office to mail her off to France.
More photos once she's arrived!

The peek looks wonderful. Love your thoughts, I had most of these before sign ups and lost my nerve. A lined dress, huh? oooooo, can't wait to see.
