Sweet little Patsy is finally all dressed and ready to show you her new ensemble. I remember that when I used this fabric to make a dress for my Little Darling, Gina, Patsy was quite smitten with it. I then made Patsy a promise that I would make her a dress using this fabric too. It’s hard letting these little girls down, isn’t it?
Patsy’s light-as-a feather sweater is hand knit with mohair/silk lace weight yarn. Pastel bullion stitched roses in pink, blue, and yellow are accented with mint green.
Patsy’s crocheted hat is made with three different colors and two different weights of thread. The brim is prettied up with a lacy crocheted edging in white bamboo. A pink dot fabric band accents the crown with a hand made wool felt rose and leaf turning up the brim.
Patsy has picked a pastel bouquet for you. It is tied with white silk ribbons. Light blue silk ribbon also ties around the waistline of the dress.
Patsy’s “Bitsy Blosssoms” ensemble will be available tonight (June 22, 2016) at 7:00 pm CST at cindyricedesigns.com. At 7:00 you may visit the “Shop What’s New” page for more details.
This is absolutely gorgeous Cindy can I ask what fabric you use I use 100% cotton but there isn’t the gorgeous designs that you use here in the UK xx
I got this fabric last year. Sorry, I cannot remember what it was called. The print fabrics I use are from quilt designers and quilt fabric manufacturers. I would suggest searching for fabric designers and manufacturers to find those that you like and then follow their work on Facebook, Instagram, etc. Usually I have to pick the smallest scale design in a collection for it to be appropriate for doll dresses. I’m sure I spend too much time looking at fabric, but it is a passion of mine, love fabric.
There must be online sources for designers and manufacturers in the UK, so you don’t have to pay customs and exorbitant shipping charges.
Your bullion roses are amazing. And, given the scale and the fact that you are stitching on a knit ground they are beyond amazing.
Thank you! I must say it is more difficult to embroider on knitwear with the lightweight mohair sweaters being the most difficult. Practice makes it easier though. Thanks for noticing. 🙂 ❤
Sweet little Patsy is very sweet, especially in her adorable ensemble!
Thanks so much, Sonia. Patsy is a happy little girl today.
Your little Patsy is quite the girly girl. The outdoor photos have perfect lighting and accentuate your lovely creations.
I’m trying to finish a couple of July 4th outfits. Maybe I will be done, or not.
Yes, I love the outdoor light too, but the wind can be challenging at times. I am always searching for the perfect way. If I had a lucite box that was the right size… Good luck with your July 4th outfits. No red, white, and blue from me this year.
You’re going to laugh. I was just outside trying to get a photo and stuck up a piece of old garden trellis, threw a towel over for shade and wham, the wind blew the whole thing over. Fortunately, away from my dollies. And then the camera is giving me fits. Focus is off as well as lighting. Who knows what is wrong. Tomorrow, try again.
It’s very maddening. It seems like the wind will pick up the second I get everything all set. See, a plexiglass or lucite something or other would help. When I get very frustrated I will hold the doll and take a shot above her knees; that works too. I spot focus on either the doll’s face or sweater to get the right exposure. Sorry you didn’t get any shots today, Joy.
