servitude: she feels fabulous in it
Have you noticed how servants, or people being made to act as servants for a period of time, are such a big part of children's stories? Cinderella, Snow White, the mute child frantically knitting shirts from nettles... there is really no fairy tale that I can think of that doesn't have at least a tiny element of really hard work. So I was thinking about this and wanting to make the little girls in my family simple little servant-inspired dresses (because, to be frank: it would be nice to have a bit more help around here from the under-four-feet crowd!) Here's my first product. I still have some variations in mind that I might work on later this week... especially if the kids get the message and start scrubbing.
