A new day, a new dress appears in the magic trunk.


Dum diddly dum a new day a new dress...


Stripes & Roses!


A cheeky look


Are you hiding something behind your back Peggy Sue?


Some how I think she looks like she is up to mischief.

A short while later....


Hello Peggy Sue...I see you have Little Owen with you.


Is that who you had hidden behind your back?  I haven't seen Little Owen for several days, I wondered where he was.

The magic trunk surprises Peggy Sue again.


Ooh look, what shall I wear today?  A new dress!


I must take off my hat...


It can sit there for now...


Next I need to take off my dress.


I am going to cheat and keep my shoes on...


I think I will wear the blue one.


Carefully does it.


Must hang my other dress up...oh look another new one, I will try that one on tomorrow.


I like blue!



Unfortunately there wasn't much fabric so not a lot of gathering was able to be done with this dress and skirt.

The Magic Trunk


Oh my word this must be a magic trunk, there is another new dress hanging up in it today!  Peggy Sue says to herself as she looks inside.


She takes off her blue dress and reaches up to get down the new dress.


She puts it on.


I must hang my pretty dress back up.  She says as she hangs it back up.


There...all hanging up nicely.  


Oh look a sun hat to match.


Peggy Sue puts the sun hat on.


Ta da!  My new dress and sun hat!


Down by the pond



Sitting and waiting.

Now what shall I wear today?

Peggy Sue had a surprise when she went to her clothes trunk today...


A new dress!  She gasps.


A pretty blue, isn't it just lovely?  Oh wait before I take it down I better take my current dress off.  She says to herself.


She takes off her dress....


....and puts on her new dress.


Do I look pretty in this?  She asks


Of course you do Peggy Sue.

Don't I have such lovely clothes?  She looks up at her Sailor Dress.


Striking a pose...


Out in the garden Peggy Sue admires the flowers.


Smells the roses...


Hmm....and stands in the pot!

Some more sewing....

Well yesterday's lovely weather has disappeared...should have known it wouldn't last long before the rain came down again.


This is the dress I made yesterday for Peggy Sue that she was wearing in the photograph where she was sitting and dreaming.


I also added the little sun hat, as when the sun is hot, you need protection!  Plus it is the perfect pretty accessory.

Today with it being thundery and wet I thought I would make another dress.


This dress has a real 'nautical' link as it was made from my older son's white naval shirt. He is a navigational officer. I am trying to use only fabrics and notions and other things that I have as I can't really be buying any special fabric at the moment. Unfortunately the navy wasn't quite the same on the collar and on the cuffs, but hey it will do, Peggy Sue is pretty good and rarely complains. A pattern I made up as I went along.
