Cherries and Fall Leaves

      Cherries + Leaves + Jumper + Dolly = Cute! Here is another outfit I made for Dolly. Actually, this cherry jumper was the first top that I made. It was just a trial run to make sure that it would be satisfactory for my mum. Needless to say, she considered it acceptable.

What can I say? This is the same pattern that I used for the Falling Leaves Jumper just shorter.

I sketched out the pattern for the cherries and then just used my sketch as the pattern. I appliquéd them to the jumper and added the rick-rack trim last because my mum thought it would be cute.

The trousers were made using McCall's 6877, but I added width to them to give a "harem pants" look. I gathered the leg bottoms into a piece of bias binding and then added the crochet trim.

This was really a simple outfit to make. I am pleased with the results and, what's more, so is my mum!

Here is a close-up of the trim:

And here is a picture of my tags that I have been making and adding into nearly every project:
