My Little Darling, Alice, is forever contemplating life and the world with a positive attitude. Actually all three of my Little Darlings are like that, and they remind me on a daily basis to do the same. Really, though, how can one be gloomy gazing at their beautiful and sweet faces!
Our latest blast of springtime hasn’t made it difficult to have a rosy outlook either. Spring has been here in the Chicago area for a good many days now, and I am spoiled beyond being spoiled, if that’s possible. The warmth and sunshine feels heavenly, and I am enjoying every second of it!
Just like our weather, Alice’s new ensemble is all warmth and sunshine. The dress features the tiniest pink roses in shades of warm pink and pretty green. The background is a deep ivory or light maize color. Ivory scalloped French lace edges the hemline. A hand dyed rayon ribbon sash ties in a bow at the back of the dress.
The wool sweater is knit with panels of lace on the center back, down the center of each sleeve, and a narrower panel along each front. Tiny bullion stitched rosebuds mingle with the knitted lace on the sweater’s front.
A beret that matches the sweater is knit from my beret pattern. A pair of embroidered rosebuds and a hand made pom pom embellish this tiny beret.
Accessories to complete this ensemble include a crocheted flower basket filled with a paper wrapped bunch of blossoms, a bracelet, and tights.
Alice’s “A Rosy Outlook” ensemble will be available tonight (February 21, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
BTW, I am so sorry about the technology problems last night which made me unable to publish my website at 7:00. I stumbled upon a work around which will hopefully prevent it from happening tonight.
I hope you all are having a great Tuesday! Thank you so much for visiting with me today. Bye for now! ❤
Doesn’t Alice look adorable? Her sweet brown eyes peeking out. If she were here, she’d be squinting at the “sun” of which we finally have some slivers today. Neighbors kitty showed up. We haven’t seen her in days, and she was happy to see us too.
Love your beautiful creation. Perfect as always.
Thank you, Joy! Yay for the sunshine! I hope it continues tomorrow. Even the cats don’t like the dark and dreary rainy days. We now have two regulars and two more visitors. The regulars stick around all day and cry when they see me.
you have to do a pattern with that design going down the center,I could probably figure it out but would rather buy the pattern instead! LoL! by far my favorite sweater that you have made yet!!!
Thank you, Susan. I started writing one for this, but wanted to make changes, so I need to knit another sample. Great idea to have it either as a cardigan or pullover (would button up the back though). I know what you mean by buying the pattern versus figuring it out yourself, sometimes easier.
oh my God, that would be wonderful! I’ll buy the pattern as soon as it’s for sale!!! I’m so excited! thank you for sharing your pictures of lovely dolls and there little outfits too…
Thanks for your support, Susan! I’m not sure when I’ll get to it though, so stay tuned.
There you go again! Just when I thought your designs couldn’t get any cuter.
Hi Marian. You’re so sweet. Thank you!
