Here is the skirt for Eithne's dress. I am working on it between bouts of IBS and crocheting afghan squares. I have Eithne standing where she can watch the progress. I have always been slow. Because I used to have debilitating migraines. They went away as menopause came on. So now I have IBS. If it isn't one thing, it's something else.
Because of my eyes and hands, I had to forego making the hand gathered matching ruffles for the skirt. So there is a lace ruffle with rosebud trim. The bodice trim will match.

Hi Silverlight ~ I wonder if you think the original title of my blog post last night "this old thing?" was a negative comment on my cherished doll. It was meant as a play on how some folks dismiss compliments on what they are wearing. As in "I love your dress." "What, this old thing?" As you can see by her wardrobe, she has cpllected quite a few outfits and has her own fully equipped closet now that my little friend E comes over to play with her so often.
