I finished Sophie’s little linen traveling costume and managed to get her to stand still for a few photos.  While she was at camp and at her request, I also made a hat using the faux suede/fur hat pattern #24 from Ottobre 04/2003).  She wanted a polar bear hat; can you tell how I mussed up?  Yes, I made the ears to big!  We have since decided it is a mouse hat, and I will try again for the polar bear effect.

I have entered the suit in the Threads magazine’s “Express Yourself In Linen” contest.  There is some stiff competition!  I am proud of myself to have not only completed a challenging garment, but to have blogged it as well.  You can view the previous blog installments on this project here: 1 (fabric preparations), 2 (underlining and pockets), 3 (shell construction), 4 (pants), and 5 (finishing jacket).

On to new things!
