Party Dresses for Amelia Thimble

party dresses 733

I was inspired by those cute little party dresses with the poofy feather skirts that you see everywhere these days.  I didn’t want to use feathers though for tiny Amelia.  This super kid mohair lace weight yarn seemed like it might give the effect I wanted and it did knit in garter stitch.  I had matching bamboo and mohair in white and pink so made a party dress out of each.  I love how frilly and delicate these dresses are.  They are the perfect winter party dresses.

I kept the embroidery colors as delicate as possible while still looking colorful.  The little lazy daisy bow adds tiny waistline embellishment.

I felt these dresses were much too fancy for a knit hat so I made embroidered knit headbands to finish off her party ready look.  Sweet Amelia Thimble told me that she feels so pretty modeling these dresses.  I told her she is always pretty, inside and out.

    Unbelievably cute and adorable. I’ve been admiring your little works of art since the four dresses on hangers and tree branch photo. I had to print it and hang on my bulletin board for inspiration. If only I could get my roses to turn out like yours. So perfect. Thanks for sharing.
