I use pink for my doll ensembles SO much, but I think this new set for the Little Darlings is the pink-iest to date. I made the crocheted hat and purse to originally go with her last outfit see here, but as sometimes happens, it just didn’t “work”. I often ask my daughter’s opinion and she agreed with me and added that these two pieces looked a bit like 1920s fashions and suggested a drop waist styled dress. Originally, I thought a white dress, but then I got in a new order of fabric and saw that this pink floral rose print would be so much prettier than white, and, although this outfit looks sweet without a sweater, a super soft light as a feather pink mohair is the icing on the cake to finish off this decadent delight.
The tiny lace rose is hand made with the same fine English cotton cluny lace used on the dress’s skirt and the crocheted hat. I added two knotted loops of rayon ribbon for the leaves and sewed a little pearl onto the center of the rose. Fiddly to make, but well worth the effort as it is so tiny and delicate to look at. I’ve started adding little thread belt loops at the side seams to help hold the ribbon ties in place.
