“Princess in Peach”

Today Alice would like to model her new July ensemble for you.  Alice’s best colors are peaches and pinks, so whenever I pull a fabric with those warm and rosy colors, Alice gets to try the fabric first.

When Alice put on her new ensemble, I thought she looked like a princess.

This peach rose cotton fabric has very faint ivory dots, so I chose to highlight those with trims, pearls, and accessories.  The lace on the skirt is brand new to me.  It is a very delicate English cotton Cluny lace, and wider than what I usually use.  The nylon English Cluny lace I’ve used for the sash is more durable for tying in a bow.

Alice’s cardigan is hand knit with salmon colored bamboo thread.  Pastel shaded bullion stitch rose are embroidered along the neckline.  I added pops of bright rosebuds and light colonial knots to help the roses stand out.  A panel of lace knitting decorates the center of each sleeve.  The cardigan can be worn unbuttoned or buttoned.

I think Alice’s crocheted pearl headband adds to her princess-ness.  After I tied on the headband, I took her front chunks of hair, brought them to the back, twisted them, then brought them underneath the rest of her wig, then added a clear elastic to hold in place.  I find mohair easy to work with; it’s not slipper at all.  BTW, this wig is a Kemper Raven Blonde wig.

Princess Alice’s other accessories include a bouquet, bracelet, and tights.
