Reverse dress


I was just looking through my photos and found some pics of a dress I made for my youngest daughter. It's black (of course) because that's all she'll wear these days... and the fabric has been over-printed with a lino cut I carved out of a cloudy moon with bats flying around... because that's the kind of thing she likes. The fully reversible lining in red pin-stripes was my idea because... well, it needed a bit of colour ;) I love that she's nearly 10 but already knows who she is and what she likes :)

Thats amazing Kylie! I love it.
I think maybe creative people have children who don't follow 'the crowd'.

Your daughter is VERY lucky to have a mom like you! She gets custom couture at its finest!
