Riley is going to Grandma's this weekend, and she has the important job of picking out a poinsettia plant to give to her very special Granny.  She is going to choose the brightest, biggest, prettiest plant the florist has to offer. 

Riley's dress has a black velveteen bodice that is embroidered with a silk ribbon poinsettia.  The center of the poinsettia is accented with golden seed beads.  Her balloon sleeves and flouncy skirt are made of red and green plain homespun fabric.  Encased within the skirt is a bit of tulle for extra poof.  The skirt is gathered at points along the bottom and accented with silk ribbon bows and golden metal beads.

Riley's beret is made of black velvet, and is trimmed with a homespun band cut on the bias for a bit of stretch.  Warm black tights are also included.
