I’m giving up on the hillbilly aspect, except MAYBE if S can find some cowboy boots.

I’ve got a good amount of dying to do this weekend before it gets cold – it will probably be the last one of the season. Boo-hoo.
Thus far, I’ve got the sash and headband sewn (a certain child thought that her pirate dad needed a headband to be truly “pirate-y”). But, I’m out of cotton thread before I sew together the skirt layer, so that is for another night.
