I really felt like making something with lilac fabric and I discovered that I don’t have much in this colorway. I have lots of plum, but not very much lilac. Hmm, not sure why, it’s a favorite color of mine. I’ve got to work on that!
I found this lilac pin dot in my stash which was a part of the collection with my vintage pillowcase-like rose prints. Here is what I made with it a couple of years ago; I just used it as an accent. I decided to use it for the entire dress this time, so I could use lots of crisp white as the accent instead of ivory which was the rose print’s background color. I do love how delicate it looks with white, don’t you?
Having the perfect white French lace (Thank you, M.! ❤ ) and white lace fabric for the tights helps this ensemble look even more delicate.
I used my pure white mohair/silk lace yarn to knit Patience’s sweater. I have two white lots of this yarn. One is pure white and the other slightly warm. They are the same item, but ordered at different times; funny how two lots can be so different, but I am happy to have them both. Shades of purples and pinks are used for the sweater’s embroidery.
A crocheted pearl headband with a hand made bow, lilac flower bouquet, and lilac bracelet complete Patience’s new look.
Patience’s “Lilac and Lovely” ensemble will be available tonight (February 23, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
I hope you all are enjoying the day today. I sure am, and am still flabbergasted that it is still only February. My crocuses have started blooming; they usually bloom in April around here! Craziness!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
