“Delicate Summertime”

It’s my little Kaye Wiggs Millie’s turn to show you something new.  She doesn’t get a whole lot of attention, so when she does it’s very exciting for her. 🙂

For Millie’s ensemble I used a Japanese cotton floral fabric that I purchased in 2012.  It’s from Lecien’s Flower Sugar 2012 collection.  The colors in this print are crystal clear, not neutral at all.  Also, the light blue is perfectly blue, not going towards aqua or the other way, to violet.

Millie’s light pink cotton sweater is an embroidered garden of bullion stitched roses and colonial knot flowers.

Of course, since it’s summertime, a wide brimmed hat is in order to keep the sun out of Millie’s baby blue eyes.  This crocheted hat is made with 3 different strands of white in two thread weights and two different fibers, cotton and bamboo.  I added a shell edging in the same pink as used for the cardigan.  The brim can be turned up or down, or one side up for a jaunty look.  The hat’s band is made with the same fabric as used for the dress.  A little hand made bow is made with the same organza ribbon used for the waistline sash on the dress.  I’ve added a row of tiny white pearls to the center of the bow.

Millie’s accessories include a crocheted basket, so fine and tiny, and a bouquet of bright pink flowers.  A bracelet and pink tights are also included with her new ensemble.

“A Flower for Penny”

Penny looks so serious about taking care of her flower blossom, doesn’t she.  She is such a gentle and caring soul; I know her blossom will last forever. 🙂

In case you’re wondering Penny is a small bjd (22 cm or 8-5/8″), and sculpted by Linda Macario.  A plus is that she shares wigs with my Little Darlings, and eyes with the MSD sized dolls.  If you’d like to see the ensembles I’ve made for her, you can find everything in this Flickr album.  Penny also has a sister named Polly.

Penny’s summer ensemble features a blossom-filled dress made out of a cotton floral print from Japan.  The tiny blossoms are in warm, yet bright, shades of red, violet, and pink.  The skirt is prettied up with cotton Cluny lace from England and a silk bow.

Her summer hat is made with a coordinating tan/off white dot cotton.  A pair of embroidered blossoms embellishes the brim.

Penny’s little cardigan sweater is hand knit with lace weight merino wool.  Blossoms in coordinating colors are embroidered on the front.
