A “Winter Garden” for the Little Darlings

I enjoy creating my own embroidered gardens during these cold winter months.  The flowers in these gardens will not get frost bite when the winter winds blow.

Gina’s cozy winter dress is hand knit with bright pink Peruvian Highland wool.  This a-line style fits her perfectly to show off her cute little girl dolly self.  The embroidery on this dress is mirrored, so the right and left sides are the same, but opposite each other.  At the hemline you’ll find a tiny rose bouquet at the center of the skirt with mirrored rose motifs on either side.  I embroidered roses in two pink families, one warmer pink than the other.  Lavender-like sprays, white buds, and greenery add more color to Gina’s garden.
