Bitty Bethany is NUTS....


. . . . . . about FALL that is!!!  And what a fun time of year it is!  The air is a bit chilly...........but not yet cold!  School has started........Halloween is around the corner.......and then there are the COLORS!!  There is NOTHING prettier than the colors of fall!  And the woods  are more fun than usual!  SO much fun,  that Bethany is taking her little cousin for a "woodland walk" this sunny Saturday! 

Leaves.....pinecones.......and lots of acorns....
I guess they will need a BIG basket to collect  their treasures on this trip!   A perfect Fall outing, don't you think?




Pleated Kilt-Style Skirt 
************
Bethany is wearing a crisply pleated cotton plaid  skirt colored in the rich shades of the early autumn trees -  a blend of rich hunter and sage green,  with just a touch of brown and tan.  The front kilt-style opening is accented by a thin border sage green, and a series of snall hunter buttons provide a tough of interest.  Snap closures are hidden beneath the the buttons.  The 'above the knee' skirt is further highlighted by a fringed bottom. 

Wool Felt Vest 
************
To accompany the kilt, Bethany is wearing jaunty wool felt vest in a soft sage green.  The vest is styled with lapels that match thew plaid skirt, and a tiny button adds a touch of accent.  An appliqued cluster of fall leaves and acorns provides further interest on the bodice.  The vest has a snap front closure fronted by tiny green buttons.   

Knit Turtleneck Top
************
Under her vest, Bethany wears a white turtleneck top made of interlock cotton knit fabric.  It features a tiny appliqued cluster of an oak leaf and an acorn on each sleeve.  The turtleneck has back snap closures.



Handknit Angora Sweater
************
Even when the sun is shining brightly, the woods can be chilly this time of year.  Bethany is prepared for the chill in her new angora cardigan sweater.  It is made of soft, thick angora yarn in a rich, deep hunter green color.  The front panels of the sweater sport appliqued clusters of leaves and acorns.  The sweater has  a bead and loop front closure at the neck.

I was unable to capture the true color of Bethany's outfit in my photos.  I have included a scan so you can get a more accurate view of the color and the detailing .



Loafers and Knee Socks
************
Bitty Bethany wears the perfect fall footwear. . . .  A pair of classic loafers with knee socks!  Her white knee socks are accented with a braided band and tiny bow for a bit of interest.

Wool Felt Beret

Bethany's Gathering basket..............
and her new little Woodland Friend!
************
I see that Bethany managed to fill that big basket of hers with a bevy of "nature's prizes!" 
And look who they met in the woods!  I wonder if he will follow them home??  I would if I were he......... wouldn't you??

 

 


*********************************
Bitty is not the only one who looks adorable in this outfit!  Sophie also has her eye on it as an addition to her fall wardrobe!! 




Bitty Bethany's "cousin" Riley has a coordinated outfit!   What an cute pair they are!  It is no wonder their woodland friends followed them home!!!..
