Description

50s style dress with pettiskirt. I was inspired to make the dress by the cute cardigan I just bought for Wilma. Hopefully she is going to wear this outfit for her 5th Birthday tomorrow :-)

Once again an upcycled sheet.

      Well, mokosha dear. If you had asked my relatives and friends 15 years ago they would have told you the same thing about me…but here I am – 4 kids later.

      And thanks for your kind words.
