Just in time for spring (and ultimately summer), I have finished my long-sleeve dress pattern. Obviously long-sleeves are not a problem in the land of infinite winter but I should probably get my skates on for a short sleeve or sleeveless dress pattern. I can't even imagine the need for such things sitting here next to my calor gas heater.
Speaking of skates, I'm tentatively naming this The Skater Dress due to its fitted bodice, curved dropped waist and drapey flared skirt. Truth be told, skater dresses are normally much shorter. But then there's this:
Still modest despite high-footed stomps which is important in this family. Personally, my preference is for more above the knee; Maia is (inexplicably and maddeningly) unhappy with any dress that is less than Amish-length ankle.
Exactly, Maia. That is how I feel when you complain it is too short.
You can make 'bring it on' gestures at me but I am not making it ankle length.
What say you?
