|From her bedroom window, I took this from the front porch.|
So I started making this robe over a year ago. I think I cut it out about the same time I did Felicity's pajamas. Its McCall's 4646. The thing I realized after cutting out the robe is that it is HUGE. She has more than enough room to grow. Originally I had planned on putting piping on the pockets but I didn't feel like fiddling with it at the time. After getting it mostly stitched up, though, the pockets were near invisible.

So, after looking at it for a while I decided to do a blanket stitch around them with silk buttonhole thread out of the huge box of vintage thread Mom gave me a few months before everything imploded. When Felicity saw me doing this she gave me a big hug and said "I love you!". I kinda melted.

|Super Pout, and buttons.|
After doing this little "photo shoot" with her I've decided I need to invest in a few reflectors and a slave-flash that I can bounce off the wall for extra light. Still, after some super cropping and some playing in photoshop I got this one photo that made me go "WOW" and want to buy a shotgun.
So that's it really. Don't expect much more out of me until after the New Year. Hope you had a Happy Solstice, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and whatever else I might have missed!
