Not sure about the outcome, but I attempted to make my frame appear as if I'd 'hand-sewn' around the frame as my effort at making a 'hand-drawn' frame. I wanted to amplify the fact that I had actually 'hand-sewn' Fran's costume.
We did those things way back in 1961 if one had no sewing machine and DID have a beautiful child with big, gorgeous, 'begging-please-mommy' eyes. Now mommys would just run down to the nearest WallyMart and purchase one on their credit card. (I had no WalyMart nor a credit card, nor much money way back then. Ah, those were the good times.)
