for the girl in you...

New dresses made their way to the shop today after a long and boring day at the sewing machine. Albany is hosting Art on Lark this weekend so needless to say, Troy is dead, dead, dead. All of the shop owners on this block met out on the sidewalk earlier this morning and we all contemplated closing early. We shall see.

The dead time was okay, though, because I had time to get some work done in preparation for Troy Night Out next week. Stanley at Market Block Books warned me that this month's event should bring in some hefty crowds due to the authors who will be appearing at the bookstore that night. I haven't gotten over there to see who these authors are, but he guaranteed they'd bring the people out. In that case, I need to stock up on some things. One of the things I've been putting off for weeks now are the little pinafore dresses. I made four today and a few others over the past week or so, just enough so that I'd have three in each size (2T, 3T and 4T). Check it:

The brown and red sunflower dress (2T) is my favorite dress I've ever made and I'd love to wear this dress if only I could cram more than just one leg into it.

I love the dress you love, as well as that last one with the dark bodice. I'm glad you decided on putting the dark material on top. It came out great!
