Bellflower Bishop

for Riley Kish


 

 
















 

 

Riley’s favorite place to play is Grandma’s garden. She is the prettiest blossom of all in her little bishop dress. It is made of a light yellow cotton printed with tiny blue flowers that quite resemble bellflowers. The yoke is embroidered with blue flowers of variegated silk ribbon and spring green leaves. The short sleeves have elasticized cuffs. The hem is blind-stitched, and the dress fastens in the back with snaps. The matching elastic headband has a bow with an embroidered center, and looks cute worn over straight hair or braids. She wears little yellow crew socks, and her baby blue shoes are hand-painted with blue bellflowers.
