Lack of cowgirl day

What ho, or should that be howdy.
When my son did cowboys as his topic at school he got to dress up for the day and he loved it.
We thought Tiny would get to dress up so i saved my lads cowboy boots and hat and set about making her a cowgirl type dress.
It didn't happen so she wore her dress on Saturday anyway

The fabric isn't that nice to work with. Its soft but likes to catch every dry bit on your finger tips. Its also a very close weave so pins don't want to go through it. It has a little bit of stretch to which also doesn't help. Still reasonably pleased with the result!

hair update

 Here is a tinys hair update - It still loots shocking (visit here if you haven't seen what she did to it). She doesn't want it cut off and is ok with it looking very odd for ages and ages!

I have done something to help her though. Last night, after sewing up the numerous holes (and re stuffing because he was abit limp due to the nail polish incident!) that she put in her beloved (and long suffering) ferret and a rabbit, i made her a new, wide and school jumper matching hair band. Just hope she keeps it on like i suggested!

i think I'll have to try and remember to take  picture of her every month and then make a re-growing tinys hair movie!
Anyway, before all this i was going to show what i made last week - at last here it is, a leotard for my friends girl who does gymnastics.
