waif & stray





i finally sewed this up! little waif & stray dress.
i really need a dressmakers dolly...
(i call it a dolly cause its nicer than dummy)
hopefully one will come my way soon..

in the states i found an antique
one at a garage sale for 5 dollars!
its too big to fly here though...
makes me say mother eff.
especially when im pinning the
clothes to myself and i stab me.

This is a beautiful beautifil dress! And I can definatley relate to prodding myself with pins when trying to pin up clothes! It can be a very painful process!
