Happy Mother’s Day to moms in the U.K.!
As you all probably already know spring arrived this past Monday! We’ve had some sunny days, but other than a very warm afternoon on Friday our temps have been quite brisk. Ah, the warm temperatures will be here soon. Although this weekend, for us, it will be about very cold, spring showers.
As we head into this last week of March, I will have three more ensembles to show you. The first is being modeled by one of my Little Darlings, Lucy. This ensemble is in my last print in this particular colorway for this collection. The other two can be found here and here. I have enjoyed this color palette so much. It is really hard to find cool, rosy pink color palettes; most floral fabrics go towards the peachy side. I love those too, but this was a nice change.
Lucy’s crocheted cap is made with a finer weight of cotton than I normally use. I wanted it be light and delicate, like a piece of lace. I kept the embellishment light and delicate too. I think it looks very cute on her.
Lucy’s light as a feather cardigan (pattern available here) is hand knit with lace weight mohair/silk yarn in lilac. Two coordinating hand embroidered motifs decorate the front of the sweater.
The cardigan sweater can be buttoned or left unbuttoned.
In Lucy’s crocheted basket are blossoms and a pink egg. The three flowers and egg are removable. Her other accessories include a bracelet and very pale lilac rayon Lycra® tights.
“A Whisper of Spring” will be available tonight (Sunday, March 26, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
