I ordered the current issue of Knitscene magazine and a back copy from the innernets. Such cute patterns! I rushed out and bought some wool/alpaca yumminess to start on this...isn't she adorable? I'm doing her in dark grey with a similar flower, although I had to get a slightly darker shade of pink because that's all they had. I might go to another Spottie tomorrow to check if there's a paler pink available. Can't sew, obsessed with cute vintagey top....doesn't she look gorgeous with a straight skirt? Mmmmmmm.

I thought I had better get moving on making some frocks for upcoming events, (Wilco and Calexico) so here's a contender. New Look 6557 view B, with bias binding instead of lining and back facing (wonder where I got that idea from?). I had to put some binding around the hem because once I'd mostly finished, it needed more pink. Do you like how the towers look like rockets taking off from the bodice?
