pictures again, mama?

Here's Immie after I asked her if I could photograph her: she found some leaves, started dancing....back to serious. That all took place in under a minute, I'd say. Then she was off, no more pictures for mama.

She's wearing the Ice Cream Dress blouse that I made for her a few weeks ago. It's funny, I was so excited to have a day in my studio just for sewing, but I found I was very tense making this top. Every little detail that wasn't perfect bugged me. But I've learned that it is just like knitting—when you take a step back, it's not so bad. I need to give myself some slack and enjoy the process, and not get so hung up on trying to sew perfectly. Otherwise, I'll never get back on my machine again!
