Let me tell you, when you’re 3 years old with lots of things to do, it’s not always your preferred way of having fun to be asked to model all the miserable things that your mother insists on sewing for you. However, when the “miserable thing” is a dress that looks princess-like when you’re twirling, and you actually do get to twirl while modeling – at least some of the time – there’s no problem!  😉

So this is Ronja wearing the tie-back tunic. The most twirly pictures were altogether a blur, so I picked the one that came closest to showing the main character.

And this one that shows the back of the dress properly.

I should probably make something for Frida next in order to give Ronja a break from the catwalk.

And now, the weather is way too nice to be sitting here, so no more from me at the moment!  🙂

    Karen – and I can’t wait for Frida to be old enough for them to really be able to play together – but there are two sides to everything, you know – she’s just growing up so quickly! But thank you for your nice comment! 😉

    Frøken Solhat – Tusinde tak – og dine grønne fingre skulle jeg så måske have lidt af… 😉 Bortset fra det – jeg har syet siden februar, så jeg vil vove at påstå, at hvem som helst med lyst og tålmodighed kan gøre mig det efter. 😉

    She is just gorgeous. I am sure she can wear everything. I love the dress, and the fabric combination is fantastic. Great work Astrid. Thanks for your continued support on my blog.

    Jeannine – Thanks! You’re melting a mother’s heart here… 😉 And the continued support is there because of a great blog – I love the things you sew!

    Mirre – Yes, I remember when you made your beautiful version. I actually thought I had left a comment on your blog back then, but I can see I didn’t. It is a great pattern, Ronja has used her so much, and it still fits her this summer! 🙂
