Today I fussed and futzed for hours (see what I mean?) trying to avoid another gathered skirt, but I had it in mind from the start with that pale fabric. The difference in texture from one end to the other, plus the shiny gold threads somewhere in between... and when I think of how feminine it feels to be in a full skirt... well, I just had to! But that's it, I'm done, I think, with dresses. Now I'm on to decorations in lieu of clothing, and this is what you see pinned to the doll. Look closely; she's wearing a few small gold yo-yos and, yes, there will be more of them all over her. The cut circles and a length of waxed thread sit by her side.
