My first holiday ensemble is all ready to show you! I started my holiday creating by using my favorite fabric first, not saving it for one of the last like I did last year. And, it just so happens that the color palette is a little bit fallish, so it is indeed the perfect one to start with.
Isn’t this fabric cute? There are so many adorable motifs in this primitive looking print, boring it is not. And, even though the colors are muted it is still quite colorful. Yes, it is my most favorite holiday or Christmas fabric that I’ve purchased so far this year.
I had the perfect shade of wool yarn for knitting the sweater and hat. It matches the rosy color beautifully. I picked out the blue and green in the print and added bits of those colors throughout the ensemble for extra “colorfulness”.
The fabric I had for the tights was a bit too rosy, so I over dyed them in an ivory dye bath. They came out perfect.
Oh, it looks like Gina has a little present for you!

Bye for now! Hope you enjoyed seeing my first holiday set of the season.
Every detail is perfect! Lovely colors.
Thanks, Janet. This color palette transitioned nicely from thinking about fall to the holidays.
The ensemble is just so pretty!
I’m happy you like it, Regina. Thanks so much!
Whoa, an outfit to die for! Sweater, dress, everything is perfect! If I were lucky enough to own a Little Darling, I would be bidding on this adorable outfit. Oh how my grandmother born just prior to 1890 would have loved seeing them. I still have the felt ornaments with sequins she made for me. And she could knit too. Must learn.
You must learn to knit AND get a Little Darling to knit FOR. LOL
How sweet that you still have things your grandmother made. I hope my granddaughter (if I have one) treasures a few of my hand made items like you do your grandmother’s.
Thanks so much for your compliment on my new ensemble!
Wonderful! Love the colors and feel of this outfit! So pretty!
Thanks, Pennie. I loved this fabric the second I saw it. It was THE fabric that made me fill up my cart with other fabrics (free shipping) and place my order. There’s always one to make me do that. 🙂
Gina looks divine and ready for Christmas in your absolutely amazing creations. Your choice of fabrics, colors and detail accessories are so so over the top everytime!
Hello Wanda and thank you so much. It still feels a bit strange creating for Christmas, but I am starting to feel in the spirit as we get closer to November.
Gina is so cute with her Christmas outfit … Too late for me … It’ s sold … Catherine
Thanks so much. Yes, it sold, but thank you for you sweet comment!
Thank you, Gina, for the little gift!
Your new outfit is beautiful, I love it!!
The sweather is so adorable!

Gina is such a generous little doll, isn’t she? She loves giving! Thank you for your sweet comments. I always look forward to them!
Very nice choice for starting the Christmas season off right! That is a beautiful print and it’s easy to see why it is your favorite. Gina looks adorable in it…all the way down to her sweet reddish braided wig! I love that style of hat on little girls too! Oh what a sweet sweet outfit Cindy! Well done and Merry Christmas!
Gina wanted a little pixie-ish bonnet for this outfit and I obliged her. LOL She looks at me with those blue eyes and… well, you know. You have three of these girls who are hard to resist.
Thanks so much for your sweet comments. I hope your week is going perfectly, Jeanne!
Cindy, I simply love this outfit in every way! Your work is exquisite! I love the fabric!
Thanks so much, Phyllis. I appreciate your kind comments. 🙂
This is such a darling little ensemble.
I love this wig on Gina also. Which one is it, Cindy?
Hi Judi and thanks so much! Gina’s wig is the Heidi from Kemper. http://kemperdolls.com/wigs/mohair-wigs/heidi-wig-mohair.html A doll can never have too many wigs, can she? I am always looking for more too.
Gorgeous Cindy, I bet that was snapped up quickly!
Thank you, Sharon. Yes, it sold that evening. 🙂
