Patience is so happy to have a Valentine’s Day ensemble to model for you. Isn’t she “LOVE”ly in it? This festive outfit features all of the requisite Valentine’s Day colors, shades of red and pink, and ivory. Delicate English cotton cluny lace decorates the hemline. There are lots of hand embroidered hearts in this outfit, the crocheted headband alone has a dozen. To get all of the pieces to coordinate to my liking I hand dyed (and custom mixed most dyes) the silk ribbon, Peruvian Highland wool for the sweater, cotton fabric to match the heart print’s background, and cotton Lycra for the tights.
Patience’s little bracelet is made with freshwater pearls. Here’s a close up of the lace, isn’t it delicate?
A dozen hearts in five different shades are embroidered on Patience’s headband. A “corsage” of hearts adorns her shoulder.
Patience wants to be your Valentine.
