"New skirt"

Anouk steals clothes and she has just found a woolly skirt.

It is for an older girl so it's a bit big for her but Anouk doesn't care. It's hers now.

She tells Boofle about her days in the circus.

She dreams about her days in the Ballet Russes.

She thinks about when Smilla found her.......or did she find Smilla, she can't remember.

She whispers more secrets to Boofle.

I knitted the skirt based on an old 60's pattern and added the straps.

I wanted the skirt to look oversized for Anouk and also "vintage" so I wasn't worried about scale.
