“Beauty in Blue”

Today, it’s Gracie’s turn to model a new ensemble for you.

Gosh, I just love looking at this beautiful doll!  I think she is my favorite sculpt of all of Kaye’s dolls.

Gracie looks very delicate in blue, don’t you think?  Really, though, I don’t think that there is a color that she wouldn’t look beautiful wearing.

Gracie’s sweater is hand knit with a merino/bamboo yarn blend.  The winter white sweater is soft and has some body to it.  The blue rose motifs are embroidered to work singly as little bouquets and to also work together to form a well balanced asymmetrical composition on the sweater.  I chose natural wood beads as buttons to help pick up the natural colors in the dress’s background.

Waistline darts help to fit Gracie dress at her waistline.  A hand dyed light blue silk ribbon ties around the waist.

Gracie has picked a simple little bouquet of blue blossoms for you.  Her bracelet is made with mother-of-pearl beads and seed beads.  A cobalt butterfly and heart dangle from the bracelet.

Isn’t Gracie a beautiful doll!  Do you have a favorite Kaye Wiggs sculpt?

    This one speaks of a tea party. The color combinations are amazing. Gracie has a dreamy look doesn’t she? I think these girls are calling.

      Thank you, Joy. Gracie enjoyed modeling this one. She told me that she likes blue A LOT! Sadly for her, another Gracie will get it for her closet. She knows, though, that there are always more where that one came from. lol

    HI Cindy,
    Gracie looks so adorable in this latest dress of hers. I LOVE the way the floss flowers stand out from the white sweater… They are really noticeable… She is a real sweetie and I bet this sells in record time…
    Her whole set is just as sweet as she is!
    Blessings, Jeanne

      Hi Jeanne,
      I made all of these roses in the larger (3-color) size. Lots more embroidery and color changing to do, but the sweaters knit with a heavier yarn need it, I think. Thanks for commenting, Jeanne.

    Dear Cindy, I wish I could adequately express my admiration for the quality and detail that goes into your work. The evenness of the knitting and the perfectly executed bullion roses on such a small scale is amazing and the dress while simple fits Gracie to a tee. Love and appreciate what you do. Marian

      Hi Marian,
      Aww, thank you SO VERY MUCH! I enjoy sharing my work and knowing that you enjoy my photos and work makes it that much nicer. I appreciate you letting me know, thank you. I will let Gracie know that she has a new admirer too. It will make her day. 🙂

    Gracie is absolutely adorable in blue! She is such a pretty doll! Her hat is very cute too, as is the rest of the ensemble.
