~*Cottage Chic*~

for Riley Kish


 

 



















 

 

Riley's Grandma has a lovely little cottage on the lake. Riley loves to go there and play with her older cousins. She fits right in with the "big girls" and even wants to dress like them. Good thing mom talked to her auntie before she packed!

Riley’s chic collection is crafted from a fun mix of pretty pink Hannah Bella prints. She loves the sleeveless polka-dot shirt with ruffles of striped fabric and cluny lace. It has a pretty hand-appliqued and embroidered rose in the center. This shirt looks great worn alone on hot, sunny days, but also looks cute worn over her turtleneck. The neck of the knit turtleneck is embroidered with a vine of French-knot roses, and the sleeves are embellished with little rose clusters. Mom will of course pack white tights that match the turtleneck. Riley’s cute pants are made from a tiny rosebud print and have ruffles at the ankles. The pants look especially nice with her lovely hand quilted reversible vest. On one side, there are cottage roses and ivory buttons. On the other side, there is a pretty paisley print and Asian-inspired ribbons (the vest actually closes with snaps). Her full skirt is adorned with three different laces, and looks especially nice with the ruffled shirt.

Riley’s hat has a bow on the brim and a crown pieced from the rose and polka dot fabrics. For footwear, she is bringing along pink felt clogs accented with ribbon buds. However, she looks very sweet summery in her little bare feet.
