"Sweet Lilacs"

for Riley Kish


 

 







 

 


There is nothing sweeter than lilacs in the springtime. Riley makes for a lovely spring lilac in her new little outfit.


Her lilac cotton dress is made of a cute 30's reproduction print. It has a pleated bodice and a full skirt. The pleat openings are highlighted by flowers made of tiny yellow buttons and bits of lace. The skirt is gathered in the back and has a blind-stitched hem. The dress fastens in the back with snaps. Her hat is made of a coordinating linen, and is embellished with more button and lace flowers. It is still pretty chilly out, so she needs her white cotton tights. Her fun clogs are made of blue felt and have button flowers on them.
