I was able to complete one more summery sundress outfit for the Little Darlings. I think this is the last one though… 😦
I made the bodice of this dress the focal point so I designed a bolero to show off the lace and silk long tailed bow when it is being worn. The lace is a scalloped rayon that is hand sewn onto the dress with tiny seed beads at the points of the lace and a line of pink embroidery at the top. The bolero is as light as a feather being made out of lace weight mohair/silk and knit on slightly larger needles. The rosebuds are colorful shades of pinks and purples and placed along the neckline and bottom corners. Finely crocheted ballet slipper shoes, rose hair ties, and a bracelet complete the look. Oh, underneath it all is a pair of prettily embroidered panties.
My new “Basically Amelia Thimble” doll suggested that I make her a viola embroidered dress too. What a great idea she had! Her blue eyes look so pretty with these colors. She even got a little hat to go with the dress. (Pukipuki Sugar is a bit jealous, but that’s the way it goes…) This dress is embroidered with viola blossoms each in a different combination of purples and blues. What fun!
Summer days…wish they could go on forever, don’t you? My Little Darling, Gina, is wearing a new ensemble called “Summery Days”. Bright white cotton and cool blue and violet hues with a touch of pink make this ensemble clean and crisp, perfect for this time of year. And…just in case a cool breeze starts to blow there is a lacy sweater knit up in a tonal baby alpaca/silk blend yarn with tiny pink rosebuds embroidered at the shoulders. A very delicate look for our sweet Little Darling girls.
