This was just the beginnings of an idea for a dress which I plan to show with the book.
I found one traced it onto an acetate sheet.
searched for an alternative.
Cutting the fabric was tricky and so I had to use the hall floor.
I chose muslin as it was lightweight and translucent but also because it is often mentioned in the Motherhood Book.
It's pretty loosely woven so was wasn't the easiest thing to sew without it puckering.
I couldn't use running stitch as it was not firm enough but back stitch pulled the threads into holes. So I sewed a combination of the two. ...sort of two stitches forward one back. Not too pretty but serviceable.
The needle and thread leaving little wounds.
When finished I hope it gives the viewer the impression of being the height of a child.
