A one-of-a-kind (7-pce.) hand made and thoughtfully designed ensemble for the Ruby Red Fashion Friends

SOLD$350 + priority shipping with insurance

*Fully lined (with lightweight cotton lawn) cotton rose print dress with cotton English Cluny lace skirt insert and edging. Closes with hand sewn metal snaps. Satin ribbon with thread belt loops around the waistline.

*Hand knit cardigan with 100% merino wool–very soft–hand dyed with a custom mixed dye. Embroidered with cotton around the neckline fronts and shoulders with coordinating floral motifs. Cardigan closes with glass pearl beads sewn on with a thread shank.

*Hand crocheted cap is made with white bamboo thread. The embellishments (hand knit leaf in bamboo thread, pink wool felt blossom, glass pearl bead) are all neatly hand sewn onto the cap in a most flattering position.

*Functional crocheted drawstring bag is made with the same white bamboo thread as used for the cap. It also mimics other parts of the ensemble with the drawstring being made out of the same yarn as used in the cardigan, and the embellishments on the cap (blossom and pearl).

*Inside the drawstring bag is a tiny hand made hanky. It is made with cotton lawn, has a fringed edge, and is carefully pressed into a neat triangle. (The same way my grandmother taught me.)

*Hand dyed light pink cotton spandex tights have an elasticized waist.

*I always add a complimentary hand made bracelet, with a heart, to show that this ensemble was created with much love and care. I feel our gorgeous and dear dolly friends deserve to be spoiled. 😁 Also, hanging from this bracelet is a perfectly matching metal rose charm.

*Shoes and doll are not included. The shoes are from Boneka. The doll is Bella from Ruby Red Fashion Friends.
