Mia in her longies and skirtie

Here's Mia, Christine Gross-Loh's daughter, in some adorable wool I sewed for her. Super cute pink longies and a wonderfully soft cashmere skirtie.

The pink longies have a little bit of a story to them. I over-felted the pink sweater and had to boil it in vinegar/water to unfelt it. While my husband helped me to stretch it out he accidentally ripped the sleeve - in two places! Thankfully I was able to sew up the rips and successfully make the longies anyway! I'm so happy they worked out because the pink wool was so beautiful:)
