4. Lucile’s Dress for Corollines Tutorial – Tutoriel de la Robe de Lucile pour Les Mini Corollines

2 Dec

Bonjour, mes amies!

Nathalie of ‘Les Creas de Nathalie’ has generously given me permission to post this tutorial of my adaptation of her pattern Lucile’s Dress for Les Cheries. I loved Nathalie’s pattern so much I adapted it for my wee Corollines.

Here are some pictures of Jeannie and Krissy wearing matching versions of this gorgeous dress.

And now all three Mini Corollines wearing the dress with slightly different shoulder straps. Don’t Krissy, Katie and Kara look lovely in their matching dresses?

Here is a link to my articles about Kara’s dress and the naughty little girls and the pussycats.

    Hello Elena Jane,

    Thank you for your bilingual tutorial. So far I could not understand properly how to knit an English pattern I’m sure this will help me: which means I’m going to test this pattern very soon for Roseline (Corolline). Have a nice day? I hope the weather will improve in your area. LIne Le 2 dc. 2012 01:01, Elena-Jane’s Dolls a crit :
