You saw the new Swing Dress that I made for Tuna last week. It still needed a pair of shoes and possibly some leggings or tights to go with it. I wanted to make a pair of t-strap style shoes, a bit on the dressy side, since her dress is a bit fancy. These are what I ended up with. I’m not sure I’m too thrilled with them. It turns out that having black shoes on a leg that is grey doesn’t really provide enough contrast.

Since it’s the start of the school year, I thought I would make Tuna a new dress to celebrate! It’s not that she’s going anywhere, but any excuse is good for a new dress, right? This is the “Swing Dress” from this set of patterns. In keeping with Tuna’s color theme of pink and green, I decided to use this very special fabric for the skirt. The fabric features little figures of Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in black, green, pink, and purple.
