servant dress again - muslin




The white cotton servant shirt shown previously, while motivating ME to clean, seemed not to influence the four-year-old in matters of servitude, even subliminally. The same can sadly be said for the yellow poplin servant dress of a couple months ago. But I'm not giving up: here are two more servant dresses, this time matching, in cream muslin. Can you tell that my children are preparing to go mop the floor for me, and then fold laundry? I'm hoping that since there's two of them they'll be able to carry really heavy things.

(Incidentally, this simple pattern will be available for sale on the new website)

I love the matchiness. And I really love they are made from muslin. I think that's perfect, crispy cotton.

That must be a strong crib! It reminds me of when I was six and my sister was a toddler. She wanted to get out of her crib but I wasn't tall enough to take her out; I climbed in instead. Then the bottom fell out. Oops.
