Shorts, vintage. Pinafore, @araroden. Pose, unprompted. (Taken with Instagram)
Pinafore! Dressed for Harriet’s third birthday party, no less.
I woke up at 3 the morning we were leaving on vacation. I drank coffee, finished packing and sewed two scarves into a billowy shirt.
Been experimenting with using felt scraps on necklaces.
Have tons of felt scraps, lots of broken necklace chains. It’s super easy. Harriet likes it. We’ll see.
Pinafore Dress for Harriet
It’s upcycled from a maternity chambray dress of mine. (We are done having children, you hear.)
Will she wear it? Yes, by god. I’ll make her wear it at least once for every time she has me read Beatrix Potter’s “The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.” (A story about a farm-girl who loses her hankies and a pinafore only to find that a washer-woman has found and laundered them, along with other articles of clothing about which Potter goes into detail. The laundress, we find out, is actually a hedgehog in disguise. It’s riveting.)
Clark’s Birthday Cake and mini-cupcakes. I COMPLETELY forgot to get photos of the larger egg-in-nest cupcakes.
