Annie’s Burnt Amber Outfit – Lovely Autumn Colours

16 Dec

Bonjour, mes amies!

Yes, yes, I realise it’s winter now, not autumn. I guess I am just in denial!


Here is Annie wearing her beautiful new dress.


This dress turned out a little darker than I thought it would, as the yarn goes through several colour changes and, unfortunately, I chose to start with a section that is virtually black.


However, the pattern is beautiful and comes courtesy of Odile at Passion Poupees (comme d’habitude!). This is one of Odile’s outfits for her Little Darling and it fits my Les Cheries, Annie, no problem.


The only changes I made were to use a size 3.5 mm crochet hook, one size up from Odile’s recommended (because I crochet tightly); and to lengthen the dress slightly. I also doubled the number of stitches on the last row before the frill so that the frill has turned out fuller.


The yarn I used was DROPS Delight shade 13 (red/orange/grey). This yarn is equivalent to 4 ply.


This is a lovely little girl look, but with grown up colours.


I think Annie looks lovely.


Bon dimanche, à bientôt …

    Annie joue les séductrices avec ses épaules dénudées. Est-ce bien de son âge ? En tous cas, sa robe est bien jolie !
