So, how do you feel about this color combination for fall? I personally love pink and plum together. I can appreciate the usual muted (or less intense) fall colors of russet, gold, brown, and pumpkin, but I sure do miss pinks and purples that are hard to find this time of year. Since plum is a muted color, I think it works rather nicely for this season.
At the end of July I pulled together some early fall-ish feeling fabrics and the color plum is present in a lot of them. Yay! I can get inspired here.
Since I pulled out these fabrics I have been moving right along with my early fall ensembles. Patience’s last ensemble, “Lovely in Lavender” came from the fabric that is third from the right and Gina’s new “Pink ‘n Plum” ensemble is made from the fabric that is first on the right. I am also currently making something for Millie with the tiny purple rose print that is third from the left.
Here is my little princess, Gina modeling “Pink ‘n Plum” for you.
Gina’s hand knit cardigan is made with lace weight mohair/silk yarn to produce a sweater that is oh, so soft and light as a feather. The bullion stitched rose bouquet motifs are mirrored which gives a more formal feel to this tiny piece.
Hand dyed rayon ribbon and fine English cotton Cluny lace add decorative touches to this simple dress.

Hello Marie. The flowers on the sweater are hand embroidered.
How cute is Marie Francoise?
Wow Cindy, this is one of my most favorite sets you have made. I LOVE the color combination and Gina looks absolutely adorable in this one! That little sweater is just stunning! You do such nice work! Happy Fall to you!
Thanks so very much, Jeanne. I have always loved plum. I remember having a pair of pants in this shade long, long ago. Happy Fall??? No, no, no, not yet. I know we cannot stop the calendar, but it really seems too soon for fall to be only about 5 weeks away. Yikes. I need to move south, way south!
My favorite is 2nd form the right..LOVE IT !
That fabric is from the same line as I used for “Pink ‘n Plum”; the roses are tinier on this one though. Thanks for your comment.
Hi Cindy! Your bolts of fabrics are so pretty with their delicate flowers and the colors are all the colors that I love. Gina is just adorable in this beautiful little ensemble! Her hand knit cardigan is the same pretty pink as the one you knitted for me for my Boneka. I think plum is a perfect color for Spring, Summer and Fall. Plum and pink do go together well.
We have the same taste in fabric it looks like. Yes, this is the same yarn. It reminds me of cotton candy.
