“Pastels in the Garden”

My Linda Macario’s Penny is excited and thrilled to show you her new springtime sweater dress.  We had a very quick outdoor photo shoot yesterday.  I had on my long down coat, but poor Penny was quite cold.  Ah, a career in modeling can be quite uncomfortable.  Anyway, Penny is fine today; she didn’t catch a cold, so all is good.

Our lilac phlox is blooming.  It is so pretty!

For Penny’s first bamboo sweater dress I tried to mimic the colors and embroidery pattern of “My Favorite Roses” which I just finished for the Little Darlings.  I do love pastels… A LOT!  Since Penny is quite a bit smaller than the Little Darlings the knitting of this dress was much quicker, so Penny should be the lucky recipient of many more bamboo sweater dresses.  She hopes so anyway!

Once we got inside Penny stopped shivering and relaxed into the photo shoot.

“Pastels in the Garden” will be available for sale tonight at 7:00 pm CST, to U.S. and Canadian customers.  I have been having problems with my website refreshing itself immediately for some customers, so you can now go to my website to view the page and see more photos and specifics about this outfit.  To be fair, I will not accept emails or contact forms for purchasing this ensemble until 7:00 pm.  And, please also only send a request once.  This ensemble will be sold to the first email or contact form that I receive at 7:00 or later.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me ahead of time.  Thank you!
