what little girl
doesn't want her own little
(these photo's of Sophie are used with her Mother's permission)
this little dress
was knitted in a size 4
with modifications for added length
my photos were taken
at the home of Sophie's grandmother
using a vintage
1967 International truck
(serious vintage rusty truck love!!)
the neckline was embellished
with beads and a little snowflake...
a little "photo-bombing"
by the kitties...
loving the rust on this old truck!
the dress was accented with beaded
tiny snowflake accents
were randomly sewn onto the dress...
some of the patches
were made from old flannel shirts...
a little I-cord belt
finishes the dress and gathers up
modifications were made to the pattern
allowing for larger armholes and neckline
so that Sophie could wear a little blouse
underneath the dress...
extra length was added
so that Sophie could wear the dress with
her leggings and boots...
(I added about 6 inches to the knitted length)
tiny crystals were sewn on to each
the light purple yarn used for the bodice
and accent stripes is
Debbie Bliss cashmerino
the other yarns
are a variety of washable cottons
from my stash...
the dress was adapted
from a pattern in the book
(with modifications as noted above)
oh to have a sunny day
to bask in the warmth of the sun....
(I'm growing so tired of winter!!)
With the recent amazing success of our Josephine's children charitable project, and before that.... the Pink Scarf project-- many of you have written to ask me what's next. I never really have a plan, as you know, I just wait for something of quality and compassion to present itself. And something has....
In the next few weeks, I will be posting about another wonderful charitable project that will appeal to all of you. An opportunity to use your talents to show compassion to someone in need of a little bit of love. If you can sew,knit,crochet,quilt,paint,.... or if you can raid your craft stash, then you will want to watch for this posting! And of course.... I will have some lovely gifts to share with you as well. Truly it will be an amazing opportunity for everyone to show some love...
