A new holiday dress, by special request, for Maia to wear to her school performance. Once again, I followed the quick and simple t-shirt dress idea, although this time the materials were more luxurious than usual. Both the top and skirt of the dress were repurposed from old clothes of mine — a green cashmere turtleneck and a white double-layered silk skirt.
I cut off the neck and sleeves of the turtleneck (I can't stand the feel of turtlenecks), felted it, and, by some wonderful serendipity, it became the perfect size for Maia. I added the white silk skirt (cut down from mine) and embellished the neckline with a strip of of natural-colored felted wool and three white buttons.
Yes, she loves it.
