Annie in Magenta – A Sophisticated Tunic and Skirt

28 Nov

Bonjour, mes Amies!

Finally Annie gets a new outfit – enough of these pesky wee Corollines!

Annie is resplendent in a beautiful tunic by Patricia of 1000 et 1 Choses (1000 and 1 Things). This lovely pattern included stitching to give a smock effect, but I took fright and was worried I would ruin it, so I left it as it was.

This is a lovely pattern by Patricia and having finally found some 2.5 mm knitting needles I have realised that Patricia and I must knit to the same tension, as this is a very good fit for Annie.

The deep pink yarn is DROPS Baby Merino Extra Fine Wool (4 ply) shade 08 (magenta) and I am unsure of the contrast white yarn for the skirt as I have lost the label.

The skirt pattern I made up myself with contrast stripes to match the detail on the tunic.

It has been rewarding to knit for the larger dolls again and I think that this outfit is a winner and season appropriate!

As a final note, I was inspired by Laurence who made a beautiful job of styling her doll, Elena’s hair in a recent post on her blog, and I tried to do the same. Not my best work I fear, but I could try again one day …

Passez une bonne journée, à bientôt

    Beautiful Elena-jane. I love the shade of pink that married perfectly with white. The style of Annie’s hair is very successful I think. I wish you a good day
