A Lovely Spring Dress for Madeline
(Charlotte, NC, USA)
Madeline's Spring Dress
I used Malfrid's pattern #0027 (Kirsten Summer Dress) to create my own version of this lovely dress.
This dress is very special, because I used some Opal yarn by Bergere de France that I bought in Paris two years ago. The colorway is not available in the US. I thought that the soft pastel colors of the yarn would be perfect to create a pretty spring dress for my daughter's doll, Madeline.
Madeline is the star of a series of children's stories, about a little girl living in France, that my daughter enjoys reading. I used small multi-color beads for the center of each flower.
I still have plans to knit the jacket that is included with this pattern using the purple colored yarn that is in the flowers.
I love using Malfrid's patterns because of the rich details in each design.
Her beautiful photography and the story for each pattern are wonderful accents to each lovely design.
Thank you for making these patterns available to us in English!
