These are the results of two weeks of string camp. (for me lots of time in the studio.)

This top started life as a dress for a then four year old Olivia. It was a challenging project from the beginning. I spent at least a year trying to find more of the blue yarn (never did) and I had to rip it out several times to correct mistakes in the lace. Then after all that it was way too wide for her. I put it away, unwilling to give up on all that work. Here we are, almost 8 years later, a perfect fit AND in style. Who'd have thought. Needless to say, I am beside myself with excitement!! All that work can FINALLY be worn.
