Seneca County Bounty

Made for Bitty Bethany Kish by CarlaC


















Bethany is visiting a vineyard overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake in Central New York State.  The carefully tended vines are just loaded with delicious grapes in beautiful shades of purple and green.  Soon these grapes will be harvested, squashed, and made into wine.  The adults say that this is going to be a very good year for wine.  Bethany is far too young for wine, but she doesn't mind because she is enjoying her grapes fresh off the vine. 

Bethany is looking perfectly sweet in her grape harvesting outfit. Her overdress is made of soft baby wale corduroy in yummy coordinating purples. Traditional embroidery stitches highlight the different fabrics.  The bodice closes in the front with snaps, and is accented with two tiny dark pink buttons. The skirt features front pockets and is embroidered with little flowers. Bethany’s petticoat is made of a very soft cotton batiste. The peter-pan collar and dainty cuffs are trimmed with a delicate cotton lace. The bodice is embroidered with white stitching, and has a lace placket with tiny pearl "buttons."  The petticoat hem is edged with a lacy ruffle. Her rolled brim hat is embellished with a lovely flower sculpted of wired ribbon. She carries her tasty bunches in a grapevine basket.
