Birthday Child


Mabel's dress made me think of 1930s wallpaper (in a good way). I also admired the patch-pockets on the skirt, pink grosgrain waistband and gray-violet background. It was a birthday present from me, but did not appear in my early post of present preview pictures because it was a bit too big when it arrived in its parcel from England and I was in the middle of altering the shoulder seams in such a way that it could be worn to the party yet still let out later to accommodate growth.
