“Blooms for Late Summer”

Welcome to day 5 of my July fashion show.  It’s sweet Patsy’s turn today, and she is very excited to show you her new ensemble.

Does this print look familiar?  It’s the same print I used for Patience’s “Pink and Plummy” ensemble, which I showed you yesterday.  I think it looks quite a bit different in this colorway though.  Instead of an ecru background this one is ivory.  The colors in this print are raspberry, burnt orange, buttery yellow, chocolate, muted turquoise, and dark teal used to depict the greenery.

I am not a huge “fall colors” fan, but I do like this print a lot; it’s probably due to the fact that it includes a pinkish color (raspberry), and I find the muted turquoise gorgeous.

A petite cotton ivory eyelet edging decorates the hemline of Patsy’s dress.  I brought out my favorite shades in this print with a hand dyed raspberry rayon ribbon, which ties around the waistline of the dress, and muted pastel turquoise cotton tights.  To further accent the rosy shades, I added a tiny hand made raspberry bow to the crocheted pearl headband, bright pink blossoms to Patsy’s bouquet, and tiny pink bugle beads to her bracelet.

Patsy’s cardigan is hand knit with a beautiful heathered merino lace yarn in a chocolate color.  It includes teal shades which coordinate nicely with the teal embroidery.  Also, there’s a rosy shade in there too.  There really are too many different colors in this yarn to name.  Isn’t it pretty though?

I was worried about the embroidery getting lost on this dark color.  Before beginning, I made sure my floss colors were either bright, light, or very dark.  I am happy with the end result, and Patsy’s little cardi coordinates perfectly with her dress.

Patsy can wear her cardigan buttoned with the ivory pearls or left unbuttoned.

I just noticed that even Patsy’s eye color and lip color coordinate with this ensemble.  Uh oh, she’ll never want to take this one off!

    Patsy does indeed look fetching in this one of a kind outfit. Love the brown sweater and how it picks up the colors in the fabric.
    So sweet.
