Hello to you all! Yep, one more, and then March 2017 is a wrap.
My very spoiled Little Darlings worked out amongst themselves who would model this last ensemble. They decided that Alice, my Little Darling painted by Nelly Valentino, would be the one to get the job. I must say they chose well; she looks as sweet as sugar in this new spring set.
Isn’t she a cutie pie! ❤ Alice shines in neutral, warm colors.
The fabric I used for this dress is the same print as used for “A Whisper of Spring”, but this one is in the warm palette. The colors coordinates with Gracie’s “A Springtime Garden Stroll”.
This print is made up of salmon, blush pink shades, a bit of neutral gold, and a soft green. The background is the palest of peach, as light as ivory, but peachier. The hemline is edged with a beautiful scalloped English cotton Cluny lace in ecru.
I chose to highlight the salmon color with a rayon ribbon sash and a hand made bow on the cloche hat. Alice’s cloche is crocheted with ivory cotton and white bamboo. The brim is edged with a feminine shell stitch. I like the brim turned up on the right side, a very stylish look. The bow is handmade with a multi pearl beaded center, and the knit leaf is in a soft green bamboo.
Alice’s hand knit “light as a feather” cardigan is made with lace weight mohair/silk yarn. The floral embroidery coordinates with the dress.
Alice’s spring basket is crocheted with blush pink cotton. Her little duckling is a vintage porcelain miniature, and sits atop a bit of green Easter grass. Alice’s bracelet is made with tiny pearls and pink seed beads. A peach/clear marbleized glass heart dangles from the bracelet. The tights are in the palest warm shade and are made with rayon Lycra® knit.
Alice’s “Peachy Keen for Spring” ensemble will be available tonight (March 29, 2017) at 7:00 pm CST, cindyricedesigns.com.
I hope you all have a beautiful day! Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
