Springtime girl

She has hair the colour of bluebells and a dress the colour of primroses, Mabel is all about Springtime. Originally when Mabel was in my head she was a riot of colours, however it wasn’t to be. Her dress and coat were originally for Izara but long ago I realised Izara suited the dark jewel colours, and when I tried them on Mabel…..well we were hooked.

The coat is Put a bow on it made from powder blue wool with Liberty fabric lining. The dress is again Liberty fabric trimmed with lace, and to keep her warm on chilly evenings she has her cardigan made using the February sweater Pattern and the wool is Old Maiden Aunts alpaca/silk/cashmere hand dyed wool in the colourways Shoormal. Believe me it is so soft and silky.

The Mary Janes are made in a daffodil yellow leather, I revised their construction after going on the shoe making course. These have a popper closure which will be easier for small children to open and close.

Mabel is now up for sale on my Etsy site.
