As soon as the gardens start blooming (or maybe yours already is blooming, lucky you) Gracie will be ready for a leisurely garden stroll with Theodora Bear to keep her company.
Gracie’s floral print dress is made from the same print, but in the warm colorway, as Lucy’s here. The roses on this print are in mauve-y shades and blush pink. The green is a lovely shade, and the background is a very light warm off white. There are tiny bits of straw colored blossoms which go nicely with the ecru English cotton Cluny lace used on the skirt.
I used two strands of baby alpaca/silk lace weight yarn to knit the sweater. The natural color and blush pink are very close in value, but still create a subtle marled effect. The sleeves are a true 3/4 length which I don’t think I’ve made before. Scattered rose bouquets and motifs are embroidered on the front of the sweater. It looks equally cute either buttoned or unbuttoned.
Theodora bear sits perfectly in Gracie’s wicker basket of blossoms. She has been embellished with a teeny tiny hand made bow and a “Made with Love” heart charm.
Gracie’s delicate headband has been crocheted with pink bamboo and tiny pearls, and is decorated with a hand made bow. The bow on the headband and the bow on the skirt visually line up with each other.
“A Springtime Garden Stroll” made for Kaye Wiggs MSDs will be available tonight (Monday, March 27, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
FYI, Lucy’s “A Whisper of Spring” ensemble is still available on my website, cindyricedesigns.com
I hope you all have a beautiful day!
