My tiny (11″) Kay Wiggs illie, Millie, is here today modeling her new (and first of the season) Christmas ensemble. Doesn’t she look festive, cozy, and warm?
Millie is so excited to have her very own Santa hat. Millie says she will wear it “all the time” when helping out this holiday season.
Millie’s sweater is knit with mohair/silk lace weight yarn. For the embroidery, I centered the main motifs around the petaled blossom shapes from the dress and embroidered them in a warm pink-y shade (for more distinction they are a shade or two lighter than those on the dress). The berries are colonial knots in a deep berry red that match the dress; the stems and leaves are lazy daisy stitches and straight stitches.
I added off white fine English cotton Cluny lace underneath the tuck on the skirt to help tie in the accents of whites.

Bye for now!
