Q&A with JillStraw

Purdy Cheese asked:
Hi Jill, has this little lady got the cute coat too...... No wonder she has such a big grin on her face. Gorgeous both the little lady and the dress! I want one!
JillStraw answered:
awww thank you! no she wasn't the one who got (either) of the pink coats - i made her a hooded shearling instead. She just got into her dress phase. Before a few months ago she would only wear dresses if they had matching leggings. I'm not sure she'd like the Cocktail Coat very much yet - maybe in a few years. She's quite a dare-devildon't let the smile fool you! She will jump off a roof if you don't watch her every second! She jumped off a second story deck when she was 2 i thought i was going to die before she hit the ground. she just stood up and said "I'm ok - I'm fine It's ok. don't worry!" and she had THAT smile on her face. I definitely will not be making her any capes in the near future though! Thanks for the sweet comments!
