I, like, totally was one with the cosmos and riffing in my sewing karma, man. Whoooa. So I managed to finish one groovy summer dress for Moonblossom-- I mean TLo. It's got the whole total nature thing going on, right?
I used an OOP New Look pattern (NL 6474), even though it is clearly a tool of the bourgeoisie establishment, trying to make all little girls look like, you know man, little girls. It totally forces us to see girls based on the gender roles society puts on them, man. And it has a hat.
This pattern only went up to a size "4", which totally discriminates against TLo's need to be, you know, a size 6. So I graded it up and added a new, longer skirt.
Because she's like a flower, she will grow in the summer sun.
Then I added some ruffles to the front, because it totally honors TLo's need to express herself through, you know, ruffles. She won't be kept down by the Man, man.
I drafted a facing to sandwich the ruffles to the front.
She digs it, man.
