“Pink and Plummy”

Hello everyone.  Let’s get on with my July fashion show.

The ensembles are starting to feel a tad fall-ish now.  Yes, I know it’s still the middle of summer, but I felt like working ahead, so why not.  (I almost made a Christmas in July set, but I held back, lol.)

Today, it’s sweet Patience’s turn to model her new ensemble for you.

Patience’s dress is made from a Japanese cotton print in a colorful, but muted palette.  The tiny pink and violet blossoms look like they were executed in watercolor, so pretty.  The greenery is depicted with charcoal grey, and the background is ecru or beige.  My darkest ecru lace (English cotton Cluny) worked perfectly on this print.  It decorates the skirt underneath a tuck.  A muted raspberry rayon ribbon ties around the waistline.

Patience’s cardigan is knit with heathered plum lace weight merino wool.  I can’t seem to get enough of heathered yarn; I find all the subtle color differences in one strand quite irresistible.  Hand embroidery around the neckline coordinates with the dress.  The cardi can be worn buttoned or unbuttoned.

Patience’s is wearing a crocheted pearl headband and holding a crocheted basket with bouquet.  Both are made with natural colored bamboo thread.  The tiny bouquet sits in the basket, and can be removed.  The stems are wound with a bit of bamboo thread.

“Pink and Plummy” will be available tonight (July 26, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.

I’ll see you tomorrow.  It will be either Lucy or Patsy’s turn to model their new ensembles.  Hmm, wonder who . . .

Have a beautiful day, my friends!
