Jeannie’s casual outfit – a tight fit!

14 Oct

This is an outfit I knitted for Jeannie shortly after I got her. It is from the Marie Claire Idees book ‘Tenues de Poupees 76 Modeles a Realiser’. I think it looks really pretty, but I knitted the top too tightly and to be honest the sleeves do not fit up to her shoulder. I think I would have to increase the number of stitches for the sleeves if I tried it again. I still haven’t even sewn on a button at the back cos it doesn’t quite close. I knitted it with DK wool from my stash, so I’m not sure where it came from.

However, the sandals are a big success. I crocheted them with a 3.50 mm hook and used Sublime extra fine merino wool 4 ply in shade 0287. The pattern came from lagrandemaisonsurleplateau.hautetfort.com. Fabulous!
