Today Alice would like to model her new July ensemble for you. Alice’s best colors are peaches and pinks, so whenever I pull a fabric with those warm and rosy colors, Alice gets to try the fabric first.
When Alice put on her new ensemble, I thought she looked like a princess.
This peach rose cotton fabric has very faint ivory dots, so I chose to highlight those with trims, pearls, and accessories. The lace on the skirt is brand new to me. It is a very delicate English cotton Cluny lace, and wider than what I usually use. The nylon English Cluny lace I’ve used for the sash is more durable for tying in a bow.
Alice’s cardigan is hand knit with salmon colored bamboo thread. Pastel shaded bullion stitch rose are embroidered along the neckline. I added pops of bright rosebuds and light colonial knots to help the roses stand out. A panel of lace knitting decorates the center of each sleeve. The cardigan can be worn unbuttoned or buttoned.
I think Alice’s crocheted pearl headband adds to her princess-ness. After I tied on the headband, I took her front chunks of hair, brought them to the back, twisted them, then brought them underneath the rest of her wig, then added a clear elastic to hold in place. I find mohair easy to work with; it’s not slipper at all. BTW, this wig is a Kemper Raven Blonde wig.
Princess Alice’s other accessories include a bouquet, bracelet, and tights.
“Princess in Peach” will be available tonight (July 25, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
Alice hopes you’ve enjoyed her little fashion show. Thanks for stopping by, friends. Wishing you a great day!
