Rose Dress

Spring

The end of Winter arrived and Rose insisted on putting away her Christmas dress!

Hide!

Hide!

Unfortunately the Quimper Hitty human didn’t have a dress organised for her to put on so she hid in the current Hitty sleeping bag project…

… from whence she pointed out that some pretty fabric was recently given us by a new friend.

This piece had a very apropos name, and Rose liked the colours…

So the human whipped up a little dress, with bodice and hem lining made from a gentleman’s handkerchief.

Rose quite liked the dress…

…and then requested that the human finish making a matching Easter Bonnet…

  1. This is so charming, K….you continue to inspire, inspire, inspire. Rose’s ensemble is more than the bees knees. It’s enchanting.

  2. How beautiful and amazing… Fascinated me as always. And do you know what reminded me the first photograph 🙂 I was a little girl and there was a friend sitting next to our apartment. Sometimes our families meet in each other’s home… I remember, one night, we visited them. And my friend told me that her grandmother’s old costumes were so beautiful and keeping them in a wooden box, (like yours above) and we went to dig it… and we tried to wear, we were so funny little princesses… because all clothes were a long style and embroideried, and beaded… Our parents smiled to us when they saw little ladies… Your talent, your imaginary and your creation are great dear, Thank you, it is always a great happiness to be here. Love, nia

  3. Love the new straw bonnet and dress! How brilliant to use the man’s hankie for lining! Our insides giggle each time we read of the latest adventures! Thanks for sharing and for reminding us to bug our sewing lady toget busy. Springtime and Easter hugs👯

  4. The Quimper human is so talented and Rose is so lovely. The new dress and bonnet are perfect. You have done it again!!

    • Thank you so much for the inspiration! The stitches are backstitched, which makes it easier to make the stitch length even, but harder to steer! Fortunately the Hittys don’t complain!

  5. I’m cheered by the sight of the spool of thread soon-to-be-at-an-end. In this time of abundance, sometimes over-abundance (guilty…), it’s nice to see something used to the utter end – and I’ll bet the Quimper Hittys will have a use for that as well!

    • We love old spools of thread, the thread is softer and more flexible, doesn’t snarl nearly as much and comes in interesting colours…we buy thread in the thrift stores sometimes just because we like the shape of the spool!
