I hope you are all having a great Easter weekend. I'm enjoying mine, although the weather could be better. I went downtown on Friday night, and it was gloomy. It was raining, windy and cold. Many upset tourists, and even more upset bar tenders. Sigh. Yesterday was as rainy. We had a little sunshine today, but clouds are coming again...

I worked all afternoon yesterday on the skirt by Dona Karan, sewing the lining and trying to attach the skirt to it. Reached a dead-end this morning. I just could not figure what to do next. So I try to unmount what I did yesterday, ruining the lining in the process... sigh... I put the skirt away for the moment. I'll make a new lining and bring it with me when I visit Emilie in June, because the lining must be adjusted to the person before attaching the skirt. And then, I'll re-check all the markings and give it another try. That'll work or that'll go into the bin! In short, so far it is a disaster :-)

But I'm proud to report that the dresses for Amandine do fit. Here is one proof:
Taken last weekend in Barcelona.
