I went through some photos from last summer recently and found this one of K being a helper on the farm. Excuse the delay in posting but I thought it was too good of a photo to ignore. Where else would you see a fairy dress and gumboots! We were shifting an auger and it was hot.
Poor K wanted to stay in her 'Oliver + S Fairy Tale Dress' that I made prior to Xmas from some 60 year old crepe my grandmother had given me. I adapted the pattern only to lower the neckline and it meant I had no collar to worry about. I made a muslin in the polycotton I used for the lining and as that fitted K fine I kept going. The dress has a large bow at the back and three layers of tulle.
