Look who was roaming around the garden yesterday! It’s Millie, my Kaye Wiggs 11″ BJD.
Millie wanted to have her photo shoot in the grass, and surrounded by flowers. I said okay, even though it’s physically harder to take photos “way down there”. I thought I’d give it a shot though; I didn’t want to disappoint my tiny Millie. I found the perfect spot in the shade of our apple tree and gave a small patch of lawn a hair cut, so she wouldn’t get swallowed up by grass. I brought out my yoga mat to lay on, but sitting on the grass was the perfect height. I was actually quite comfortable once I got situated.
You might recognize this fabric. I used it for an ensemble for the Little Darlings earlier this year. Here is Lucy modeling “Pink Happiness” in case you want to see it again.
Millie’s little cardigan is knit with blush pink lace weight baby alpaca/silk yarn. It’s super soft! Ivory/pink roses pink up the background ivory of the dress. I added a tiny bit of pastel sky blue embroidery. It’s in the print, but is very light.
Millie’s headband includes a crocheted ivory rose made with very fine cotton. A hand made bow is tucked underneath the rose for added prettiness.
I haven’t used my park bench for a photo shoot in a long time. I used to use it all the time when Bethany was getting lots of attention. The seat is a little deep for Millie, but she tried very hard to sit up straight for me.
Millies is such a feminine little miss, isn’t she?
