“Lavender Rosy Garden”

I am someone who loves the purples–lavender, lilac, violet, purple, plum, orchid, mauve (although I got burned out on this last color in the 1980s) and I am someone who loves roses, so this new ensemble for the Little Darlings practically created itself.  Just kidding, of course.

Jeanne, at the blog, I Dream of Jeanne Marie, started creating a yummy lavender dress for American Girl dolls a couple of weeks ago and looking at her pretty lavender outfit got me itching to make something in this shade right now too.

      Hi Heather. Thanks so much for your comments. I agree, this color is great for her skin tone. In person, she looks great wearing anything, but the camera does strange things with skin tones.
