Three smart girls 4

Wednesday, 7 March 2007

"A variation on the same theme; our three smart girls have taken the same design and presented it in three ways: one has given it a plaited neckline and made of it a house cape. Another has knitted it in stripes, with a fluffy border, and made herself a bedcape; the third has added a little collar and made a cape to wear out of doors, over her lightweight suit."
