And yesterday when I asked her to model her new Ruffled Halter, she really got into character. I guess this is what happens when your mother is constantly taking your picture. Andrew asked me to estimate how many photos I have taken of her, and because I was always in last place in that guess-how-many-jelly-beans-are-in-the-jar game, the closest I can come is “thousands.” Several thousand. Get ready Elite, you have a new client on the way.
This was my first Ruffled Halter (yeah, only a year late) and the fabric is absolutely divine. It’s a voile from Valerie Wells called Berries in turquoise. It was kind of a pain to sew, just because it is so “filmy,” but I will probably end up ordering several more yards of her other prints. I did get another print that will become a Class Picnic Blouse. Don’t be surprised if everything I make for the next several months is voile.
