Shona’s New Dress – Stripes!

21 Dec

Bonjour, mes amies!

Here is Shona’s first outfit and it is a dress by Marie at Les Voyages de Capucine.  I was delighted that Capucine was able to come and visit Scotland for a seven day trip earlier in December.


This is a cute little tunic dress and it was very easy to follow Marie’s instructions.  The front and back are all knitted in one piece, which saves having to sew the shoulder seams. The sleeves are then picked up and knitted, so yet another saving in sewing effort!



I used Stylecraft Life 4 ply in shade 2309 (Heather) and Woolcraft Baby Care 4 ply in shade 702 (Lemon). I used Marie’s recommended size 3.00 mm knitting needles.


This is a really sweet dress and I think that this heralds the start of a stripey theme that I think I will continue after Xmas.  (Got to try and come up with some Xmas outfits now!)


Shona’s hair is a bit tangled, but I actually liked it all messy like this.



Here are the two new French arrivals together with their first outfits.  I hope that Patricia and Shona will be happy here in Scotland.



Bonsoir, à bientôt …

    De ta façon de les choyer elles ne peuvent que se sentir bien chez toi.
    In your way of cherishing them they can only feel good to you.
    Les tenues sont très belles et la robe de marie est mise en valeur par ce choix de couleur.

    Sure that Shona and Patricia will be happy in Scotland. It cannot be there otherwise in a so wonderful country ! I like very much your dress and it is very pleasant for me to see a different version of this dress. Colors are very soft and harmonious. Thank you very much for the link ! It is my first one, I am very proud !!! Bisous Elena-Jane.

    Cette robe-tunique est absolument adorable, elle pourra se décliner de toutes les couleurs. Merci à toi de nous faire connaitre “les voyages de Capucine”, car tous les partages sont sympathiques. Bravo pour ton travail, tu aimes vraiment ces petites et cela se voit, ta maison doit être super accueillante. Bisous, Martine
