Tee and knickers set

also made her doily bunting for her room but it's not hanging up yet so here's a horrible photo of it on the dining table instead:

doily bunting for gracie

it was a bit scary chopping those doilies in half let me tell ya. i had horrible pictures in my head of them just falling to bits before i could sew them in to the binding. they didn't. it was fine. i made bias binding out of grandmother's flower garden by japanese fabric manufacturer lecien. i love the process of making binding. i find it extremely satisfying.

delicious handmade bias binding

and now i am drinking lovely red wine, eating nice chocolate and being a sloth in front of the computer. enjoy your weekend peeps.
