“Autumn’s Pink Roses”

Meteorological fall has been in full swing for a couple of weeks in the northern hemisphere, but it still feels quite summery here in northern Illinois.  It has cooled off just a teensy tiny bit, however, it’s still tank top and shorts weather.

I have two teeny tiny, and I mean teeny tiny, pink rosebushes that happily grow underneath a birch tree in our front yard which are the same shade of pink as this fabric print.  Not that this matters, but probably contributed to the title I thought of for this ensemble.

This fabric print is the same as “A Plummy Fall” that Gracie was modeling for you yesterday.  (I bought a whole yard of this one, so I have lots left over!)  For this ensemble using the ivory ground color I picked a smaller doll to best utilize this print’s petiteness.  Millie is 11″ and quite slender, and this print still looks small on Millie.  I can’t get over how the manufacturer can print such a complex and colorful design so small.




Millie’s sweater and hat are knit out of lace weight merino/silk yarn.  The pieces are very delicate and light weight.  I chose to keep the embroidery softly colored and centered around the pink roses with the littlest touches of golden and aqua.


Millie’s accessories include a mesh drawstring crocheted purse that holds a tiny hanky made out of the dress fabric, a bracelet, panties, and anklets.





Millie’s “Autumn’s Pink Rose” ensemble will be available tonight (September 16, 2016) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

Millie and I hope you all have (or are having) a great day!  Thanks for visiting with us!

      Hi Wendi,
      Sorry I didn’t get back to you with measurements. I think Bethany (from what I’ve heard) is closer in size to the 10″ Effner Boneka doll, but I still think the fit from a Bethany outfit wouldn’t be the greatest. Millie is very slender, and the clothing would probably be too tight. I will try and get some measurements taken soon, and also a shot of my two dolls, so you can see the difference. Thank you, Wendi! I hope your new girl can find an outfit soon.

    Wow, another wow outfit! Love that hat style and the accessories. Milly is such a sweet girl in this one. Looks like she’s ready for a trip to the ice cream parlor to meet a friend.

      Hi Joy. Millie would have loved to go out for ice cream, but no such luck I’m afraid. I couldn’t risk her getting her new ensemble dirty. lol! Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!
