As long as I can remember we had a pretty little dress dancing on our clothesline. My Grammy’s clothesline had a dancing dress on it too! Our clothesline dress and I had a relationship. Like when I reached to give her back the clothespin I borrowed. It was late at night and as i stuck my hand in I felt something move. Out flew a BAT!!! EEEEK! She’s been a part of the family.
A year ago our dancing laundry friend began to fall apart. My mom mentioned how sad she was to see her go, so for a surprise birthday present I made her a new one!
I wish her arms for a bit more proportionate to her body… but the colors and style are entirely my mom! She lives on our clothesline and dances whenever she feels so inclined.
Organic cotton and printed floral cotton. Oh, and a hanger!!! : )
