“Patsy in Pink”

Well, finally… Patsy gets some attention around here.  Her last outfit was a Christmas ensemble!  Poor girl!  She is so patient though, not a peep or a complaint out of her.

Since Patsy has waited so long and shown such patience, I picked out one of my favorite (and hers too, I think) pink fabrics for her.  I used this fabric last year for Gina here.

As you can see, this girl loves pink.  Look, she’s wearing Penny’s Boneka white leather shoes.  They fit perfectly with this outfit, and look oh, so cute!  I love it when the girls share.

Patsy’s hand knit mohair/silk sweater shows off two mirrored image rose motifs in soft colors to coordinate with the dress.

The sweater can be worn open or buttoned up with the little pink bead buttons.

Patsy’s crocheted wide brimmed hat is made with three different fibers:  bamboo pink, a finer warm white cotton, and a pure white cotton.  The brim is edged with the bamboo pink to give a ruffly effect.  I happened to have another print from the same fabric collection, so I used it to make a band for the hat.  The mohair rose is crocheted as is the bamboo green leaf.

On Instagram I show this bracelet being made using my iPhone and the time lapse effect (wish it really went this fast!).  Click here if you’d like to see my video.  Also click here to see a time lapse video of Patsy being posed for her photo shoot.  FYI, I don’t think you need to have an Instagram account to view my photos and videos on Instagram.
