Ready for the Tea Party

29 April 2011

I have a bunch of sewn stuff that I’m actually willing to sell. I’ve been hesitant to sell some of the stuff I’ve made because I’m still trying to improve my sewing machine skills.

It’d be better if somebody else does 🙂

I added the ruffles and the hem which are repurposed elastic lace and stretchy beige fabric.
