*Scilla Bishop*

Made for Bitty Bethany by CarlaC

"Are you ready?" the Snowdrop asked,
"'Tis time to start, you know."
"Almost, my dear!" the Scilla replied,
"I'll follow as soon as you go."

"Flower Chorus"
by Ralph Waldo Emerson
 


Spring has sprung!  The snow has melted, the birds are singing, and the very first flowers have started to bloom.  A lawn of blue Scilla is a delight to behold, particularly when Bethany and her sister are out frolicking about in their new spring bishop dresses.


Bethany's bishop is made from a lightweight cotton printed with the daintiest of blue flowers.  The yoke is embroidered with deep blue scilla blossoms, ice blue buds, and forest green leaves. The short sleeves have elasticized cuffs.



The  blind-stitched hem falls just below the knee, and the dress fastens in the back with snaps


The matching elastic headband has a bow embroidered with little ice blue buds. 



Sisters love to wear matching dresses!
