Patience Has Been Patient

My poor little Patience. She has been overlooked by my other girls for months now. However, she is now finally getting her chance to show you her new spring ensemble.

I asked her what her favorite part of her new ensemble is and she said it’s “all the roses”. Fair enough… this is an ensemble filled with rose motifs and rosy hues. There’s also a touch of the palest of blues in the dress print, which I love. I brought out more of that color with her ribbon tie, bow on her headband, braided basket handle, and in the cardigan’s embroidery.

Patience’s cardigan is knit out of lace weight merino/silk yarn in a rosy berry-ish color. It’s a little bluer than what appears on my screen. I embroidered rose motifs in coordinating colors on the yoke. She can wear it open or buttoned. The buttons are glass pearl beads in a cream color.

Patience’s rose print dress features a multitude of rosy hues with touches of pale blue. Around her waist is a rayon ribbon in blue. The full skirt has a tuck near the hemline– underneath the tuck is a row of delicate English cotton Cluny lace in a warm white color.

The pearl headband is crocheted with faux pearls in cream. It ties at the back, so is fully adjustable. A matching ribbon bow adds extra sweetness.

Patience has already picked a few blossoms for her crocheted flower basket. (They can be arranged and rearranged.) It is made with natural colored bamboo thread. The handle is braided with the bamboo thread and the blue ribbon.

Patience’s pretty bracelet is made with genuine freshwater pearls and garnet beads. The mother-of-pearl heart dangle shows Patience that this set was made with love, just for her.

Her rosy rayon knit tights complete her new spring look.

As you can see Patience is all ready for spring! We are starting to enjoy some warmer days mixed in with the yet cooler days. I am enjoying frequent walks to check on what is newly blooming. 💐 I don’t want to miss anything! I LOVE this time of year!

I hope you are enjoying spring (or autumn). Have a wonderful weekend (& Easter if you celebrate) wherever you call home. Sending hugs from my sewing room… and my sunny front porch. 🤗💖

    Aw, cute. Love seeing Patience. The one here hasn’t had much attention lately. In fact, last time I looked, her eyes were crossed! Ha ha.
    Hope you have a delightful Easter. 🙂

      Hi, Joy! Ha ha–fix that girl’s eyes. My Patience has sticky eyes too. She looks a bit crazy when that happens.
      It’s hard to keep up with all our girls. The new ones tend to take over; and the old ones… poor things.
      Happy Easter to your and your family!🐥 I hope it’s a beautiful day for you all.

    Aww , I am feeling bad for Patience but the wait has been worth it Cindy ! You definitely can see the pale blue when you look close at the print , but I agree with Patience that the roses are the highlight , a girl after my own heart! The cardigan is so lovely and so well made ! I love the cluny lace detail near the hem of her gorgeous dress . How nice that Patience has been able to pick some flowers already in her basket ! That is a pretty bracelet and heart dangle . Winter is still not letting go without a fight here Cindy! We just got some snow showers on Easter Sunday ! Then the days have warmed but it has been cloudy and rainy. Waiting for the blossoming to come. We had a lovely Easter , I hope yours was too. Take care and extra hugs to Patience, she looks amazing, Terri xo.

      Hi, Terri. Thank you for commenting. I think I missed this–haven’t been here for awhile, sorry. We are still having many cold days, and hardly any sunshine. This weekend we may have both a warm and a sunny day all in the same day! I hope your weather has been better than ours has. Probably the only positive of a cold spring is that the flowering trees and spring flowers last for weeks. We had a very nice Easter, thank you. Happy Mother’s Day! Sending warm and sunny wishes over your way. 🌞❤️
