Gina is “Ready for Fall” — Are You?

It’s a NO from me!!! The way this year is flying by winter will be here any second now. And it’s no secret that I am NEVER ready for that season. How do you feel about winter? Is it anyone’s favorite season out there? I am in awe of you if it is. It seems to be the longest season, so is a great choice if it is.

Okay, that’s all the talk about winter that I can handle right now. Back to Gina who is prepared for that first crisp day of autumn. Her ensemble colors are in a muted fall palette: peach, blue, yellow green, palest pink.

Gina’s fully lined dress is made out of a moody and warm colored print (Ambleside by Brenda Riddle Designs). The floral shapes remind me of different mums which are just starting to bloom here in northern Illinois. Silk ribbon in peach and blue tie twice around the dress’s waistline. Cotton eyelet decorates the skirt’s hemline.

Gina’s bracelet is made with the tiniest glass pearls and blue seed beads, a stone heart (rose quartz?) and peachy crystal butterfly. It is strung on stretchy jewelry cord which makes it easy to slip on.

Gina’s cardigan and beret are knit out of hand dyed merino wool lace weight yarn. If you’d like to knit a cardigan like Gina’s I have a new pattern for it. The pattern is written with line by line instructions to easily follow along with when you are knitting.

Gina picked out a teddy bear to accessorize her new fall ensemble. I embellished her a tad because Gina wanted her to coordinate. She has a scarf knit in matching yarn, a silk ribbon bow, and a cute heart charm. Isn’t she sweet?

Gina and I hope you love her new fall ensemble. She is the first of my girls to be ready for fall. Do you have any fall preparations started yet?

Wishing you a wonderful holiday weekend if you live here in the U.S. If not, enjoy the weekend wherever you live. Sending hugs 🤗 from my sewing room filled with my tiny girls. They’re all blowing kisses to you right now…😘❤️💕💖

      Thank you, Carol! ❤️ I cannot believe I’ve had Gina for 10 years, can you? It seems like yesterday when she arrived, and made my first Little Darlings ensemble which she happily modeled for me.
      It’s always a treat to hear from you!!! Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful Sunday, Carol!

    Oh, such a sweetheart. Love the outfit, and the bracelet with the dangles is perfect.
    Trying to keep cool. Only 90 outside and heading up. Inside 77. Not bad at all, but it will be getting hotter soon even with fans blowing. I think right now, some winter weather would be refreshing. 🙂

      Thank you, Joy! ❤️ Glad you are able to stay ‘sort of’ comfortable. I’m sure a mini snowstorm sounds like pure bliss to you right now. Try and stay cool today… ❄️⛄️

Gina has a really nice palette of colors for fall. I do love the floral pattern with the green. That is sweet silk ribbon. Another wonderful job by you knitting her pretty cardigan.
