    I don’t know which picture I prefer, Jek’s which is so textural and peaceful, or the awesome crocheted outfit! They’re both lacey!

    I think she might lose that top if she actually decides to go swimming in that!

    oh my goodness, how does she manage to keep that top up? She’s got nothing to put in it!

    I worry about nipple exposure.

    Maybe she had them removed, along with some ribs. You wouldn’t want them getting tourniquet’d off by a pulled daisy stitch…
