“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.

    Millie is so sweet in this outfit. Love that the dress blue matches her beautiful eyes. And what lovely photos. Your grass is so green and lush. Perfection.

      Hi Joy, and thank you. It’s always nice when I can get outdoors for photos. We had a near miss though; Millie almost fell off the railing and into the bushes. I caught her just in time by one of her legs. It is risky business having an outdoor photo shoot. I hope you are enjoying a great holiday weekend, so nice when they’re long ones, no?
