Pretty Posies . . .Pretend Style!
**************************
After a very messy winter, the days are finally getting longer, the sun is shining and temperatures are warming.  Sweet little Camile is very anxious to plant her summer flowers  . . . and she just won't be content with Spring's tulips and daffodils! 

With the frost date a whole month away. . .what IS a girl to do??

Of COURSE . . . . . she can always play  "Let's PRETEND!" 

Obviously Camile thought that a fine idea, as here we see her, happy at last, with her BEA-U-TI- FUL posies . . . make that PRETEND posies. . . all abloom! 

Before she knows it, the nights will be as warm as the days, and she can get down
 to the business of planting some REAL flowers . . . 

  But will they EVER be a fun & festive as her Pretend Posies??  Not a chance!

Pleated Dress with Handknit bodice
********************************
. . . . Camile is wearing her new dress, colored in the jewel tones of spring & summer.

Her grass green handknit bodice,  featuring a rick rack  & fringe trimmed ruffled collar, tops a beautifully colored plaid pleated skirt.

  Her hand sewn skirt hem is accented with a trio of vintage rick rack points encased in tucks, and the waist features a multilayered "Pretend Posy" along with another row of embroidery accented trim.

The knit bodice is fully lined and an attached gathered slip ( also hand hemmed)  adds extra flair to her skirt.

 


Wool Felt Shrug/Jacket
*************************
. . . . . Even with the warming temps, the air still has a bit of a chill, so Camile's new dress is accompanied by a simple shrug style jacket. 

The soft pale green wool felt shrug is fully lined with the plaid of her dress, as are the lapels and cuffs.  Vintage rick rack points, embroidered with french knots, accent the neckline, and a single "pretend posy"  centered with seed beads embellishes each sleeve.  A decorative belt accents the back of the jacket.

Raven is modeling the outfit in this photo, and while it does fit her it is a bit snug.   As you can see, the size difference between the dolls results in a shorter, more empire styled dress.   A bit of a different look, but still cute.


I received an inquiry about the fit on other 12"-14" dolls such as the Tonner Betsy McCall.  Here is a photo of the outfit on her and it fits perfectly.   It fits the 12" Kish Bethany, but a bit loosly and I would need to hem it quite a bit sacrificing at least one row of rick rack.  I would not recommend it for Bethany.
