The Gift Bearers!
A One Of A Kind Ensemble
for Jo Kish
(or any of the 16" Kish dolls)

by pj

'Tis Better to Give. . .

. . . . Than receive!  Or at least this is what Jo and Bethany's Mom tells them again and again! 

And Jo has decided that probably Mom is right.  Choosing the perfect presents for each person, wrapping them such festive paper and ribbons. . .  and then imagining their squeals of delight when receiving these wonderful gifts, MAY just be more fun than getting gifts after all!

. . . . Well.,   On second thought, lets just say that giving is AS MUCH fun as receiving!

After a busy but fun holiday season, Jo and Bethany are now in charge of transporting the gifts down the street to Grandmom's house!

Jo is carrying a big Christmas stocking filled with goodies!  "I wonder who THIS is for?" she asks. 

"Could it be for ME???". . . . Or maybe it is for YOU??

 Pleated Skirt with Front Panel
. . . . Jo is wearing a fully pleated skirt in a festive holiday hued plaid flannel, with shots of gold thread throughout.   A fringed front panel, embellished with rows of gold beads down each side, adds a touch of interest.  Matching fringed straps add an additional accent as well as serving to keep her skirt securely in place.  Back snap closures are covered with more gold bead "buttons".

Knit Turtleneck Bodysuit
. . . . Beneath her skirt, Jo wears a crisp white knit bodysuit with a cozy turtle neck collar.  The beautifully hand embroidered sprig of pine and holly on the collar coordinates perfectly with the vest,  and Jo's fringed plaid cuffs add a touch of whimsy.  The bodysuit has a back placket closure for a professional finish.

Wool Felt Vest
. . . . Jo's lovely Christmas outfit is completed with the addition of this beautifully embroidered  and appliqued wool felt vest.  The vest features unique peblum styling , plaid accented lapels and gold bead "buttons". 

Further detailing includes a lavishly embroidered, appliqued and beaded arrangement of pine boughs and holly leaves, as well as an adorable little functional pocket.  A small decorative belt accents the back. 

Matching Beret ~ Hair Tie
. . . . A red wool felt beret, trimmed with a band of plaid flannel and accented with a festive ribbon, fabric and bell decorated bow,  is the finishing touch. . . .setting off Jo's glorious blonde hair to perfection.
A green twill tie is included for those more casual times.

Flannel Wrap
. . . . A simple fringed wrap made of plaid flannel to match her skirt, is the perfect accessory to keep out the chill as Jo makes her way down the street to Grandmom's house.  .

Handpainted Boots ~ Socks
. . . . Keeping Jo's toes stylishly warm are striped knee socks and a pair of white boots painted with sprigs of holly and pine to match her vest. 
"I sure hope I don't get snow on my new boots"! Jo worries.

Gold bead necklace
 . . Every Christmas Jo gets another bead (or two) to add to her necklace!  As you see. . . . it is the perfect accessory for her new outfit.. . . .and maybe Daddy will add this year's bead tonight! 

Jo's Embroidered Christmas Stocking!
. . . .Hand embroidered & appliqued wool felt Christmas stocking
made especially for Jo to match her Christmas outfit!   OF COURSE the stocking is filled with goodies!

. . . . And yes, Jo was RIGHT! . . . . The beautifully embroidered Christmas stocking WAS for her! 

Complete with a new mohair Teddy Bear (by Gund) , a mini Christmas tree! And who knows what OTHER treats are tucked in there! 


Here is Jo with her sister Bethany ready to make the LONG walk (a few doors down...) to Grandmom's house!  My, they are laden down with gifts, aren't they??
