Aprons and Culottes

Culottes for Girls  - it only went down to a size 4, so I modified it slightly so it would be smaller.  They are long.  However, it is winter and so far, they haven't hampered standing up like long dresses do.

Girls Edwardian Apron - Christmas present for girls.  Now the girls can help without messing up their clothes!!  They are very excited.  I think one is already planning/setting up the kitchen for lunch.

New Pattern Company???
