A dip dyeing 1st for TNG!


I wasn't sure at first if this was something we could or even should, do...... so, I threw caution to the wind and this is the result!

I'm actually over the moon with the outcome, it is definately unique!!

We may add an embelishment or two, and then it shall be loaded onto the shop!

A gorgeous 100% wool suntop with a matching soaker. Dip dyed in pinks and lilacs, using BFL aran, one of the softest!

  2. Aww thanks hun, you don't know how nervous I was doing this!! Not actually measured it yet! I 'think' the soaker is 19 or 20" rise and hip wise it stretches so easily, would fit all hip sizes. The top I will need to measure, will do that once kids are in bed :-)

  3. I think it's another case of 'in the middle' syndrome for you Eleanor! Top is 10" long from neckline down to rim, at widest point across it is 11" and under arm to under arm is 10"... by my reckoning thats approx 12-18mths, depending on size of child of course. Soaker is 19" rise and 20" stretchy hips. XXX

  5. Typical! Oh well, nevermind. I shouldn't be buying more anyway (but I'm so weak!) There'll be a very lucky girl who gets to wear it!!
