a little paint-by-numbers dress
Did you see the wood-cut states made from old paint-by-numbers paintings that http://somethingshidinginhere.typepad.com made? I caught a glimpse of these this morning just as I was in the middle of sewing this little dress. They are so cool. Check them out.
The scene I used as my inspiration for the paint-by-numbersesque pocket on this simple dress was the meadow of my in-law's Virginia home--one of the most beautiful places on the earth, in my opinion. H. likes this oversized pocket too. Especially since I put a little pack of gum in it so she would pose as my model. For my kids, there's no better bribe than some gum! I hope I don't find it stuck in the back of her hair tonight. That often seems to happen when I resort to this bribe...
