Another Little Sweater Dress…

I made Penny another little sweater dress.  This time it is in a yummy purple shade which reminds me of fuchsias and orchids.  It is a bright color, but not gaudy or garish.  This color is a medium dark shade, so the natural color of the wool probably tones it down.  Anyway, it is one of my Peruvian Highland wool pinks/purples that I am in love with, and it looks beautiful on Penny with her carrot red mohair wig.

I ended up trimming this wig down quite a bit, and it’s still long.  I love it on her now; it’s very soft, shiny, and luxurious feeling.  If you want to read about this wig in an older blog post, click here.  Isn’t she cute?  She’s waving hello to you.

For the embroidered bullion roses I chose paired shades of lavender, cool pink, and pink.  This color yarn looks beautiful with lilac and bluish violet.
