As summer starts to wind down, I am starting to turn towards a fall-ish palette with my new ensembles. I know that I am probably ahead of schedule, but I am always thinking 6-8 weeks ahead of the current date, so I am already designing for September/October. Thank goodness though, when I look outside it is still summer. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Hopefully the weather will act like summer for many weeks yet.
Patience’s new ensemble is pastel, but muted color—beige, ecru, rose, and lavender. It would look pretty any time of year, actually, but I was inspired to work with this fabric now.
Patience’s “light as a feather” cardigan is knit with lace weight mohair/silk yarn in a dusty lavender. I pulled rosy color from the dusty pink roses and off white color from the background to embroider the bullion roses. I was very happy how embroidering with these colors pulled the sweater and dress together so well.
In Patience’s hair is a crocheted rosebud that matches the sweater.
Two rows of ecru lace (English cotton Cluny) are tucked underneath two pin tucks on Patience’s skirt. Patience’s sash is from the same lace company in England, but this lace is a fine nylon. I dyed it ecru to match the lace on the skirt. It makes a pretty little sash, don’t you think?
Patience even found a little flower blossom that coordinates perfectly with her new ensemble.

Patience’s ensemble is beautiful! I love this gorgeous doll!
Have a good day!
Thanks so much Catherine. I love Patience too! Wish Wilde Imagination was still making her. Have a great weekend.
Patience looks so sweet in anything that you dress her in. Lavender is one of my favourite colors and this outfit is very pretty.
Mine too, Sonia. For that matter, I am drawn to any shade of purple. Patience and I say thanks so much!
