I really like navy.  I don't know why.  It seems like such a boring color.  But I like it anyway.  When my sister got married, she wanted all of her bridesmaids to wear a different shade of blue.  I chose navy.

I recently finished two new tops for Natasha, and they are both ... navy.  I should probably move on to other colors now.  But I'm pretty pleased with how these turned out.

The first one is a Sadie Shirt from Craftiness is Not Optional.  The main fabric is a cotton I picked up at a store here in Moscow; the trim is this fun yellow lemon print I have a ton of, since I was planning, at some point, to make dresses for the girls out of it.  I have since decided that maybe it's too lemony for a dress.  But for trim, it's awesome.

Hi, I'm 2-and-a-half.
Zoned out to cartoons.

Better with white tights.

She got more cooperative when it was time to go to music class.  Yes, in the snow.  Yes, without a coat.  Yes, without boots. (Also, she fell on the way home).  But in my defense, we literally just have to cross a very small little street to get there.

Then tonight I finished this little number from Make It and Love It.  Do you remember that shirt I made myself last summer?  The one that did nothing for me, but I blogged about it as though I were a finalist on Project Runway?  Yeah.  I cut that up and made this.  Much better.

Again with the garish tights.
