making a lookalike outfit

I made a dress for Emily recently:

Here's the back. Does this ring any bells?

I used this pattern - Burda 9752 view B but I lengthened the sleeves.

Then I found a free hat pattern online and made a wee yellow hat. Any bells yet?

Then I knitted up a pink pair of bootees.

Does anything look familiar yet?

How about now?

When we were over at Debbie's last weekend, we tried everything on baby Emily and put her and dolly Emily together to see how good they looked together.

Gorgeous, yes?

The dress fits perfectly, the hat is a bit big and the bootees were really only made to complete the lookalike outfit but we all think both Emilys look amazing!

Fun times!

  7. 2 Beautiful Emily's.
    On another note, have you seen the Outlander merchandise on the Historic Scotland Website? All a bit driech and dull looking and expensive! £11.00 for a tea towel. Much prefer the bag you made.
