A Calgon Moment

Posted by April Henry on

 

Remember the old commercial adage, "Calgon, take me awaaaaay"... well, at the completion of getting this set put together as a gift for a friend's 11-year-old daughter it made me think of that old expression. It's hard to believe that I've known this young girl since she was only 2-years-old. Where have the last nine years gone?!? In another nine years, she will be 20 - AAAAaaack!

Anyway, this is for her birthday.

Top: Ottobre 04/04, #36 size 140 (approx. size 12)
Leggings: Ottobre 04/04, #38 size 140
Eyemask: A self-draft from another friend.
Basket: A variation of the one found in this book. (I used a 15 inch square and cut 5 inch corners rather than 3 1/2 so it would stand deeper.) Everything is knit, including the basket, but I added enough interfacing for stability.

 

Sleeve hem, neckline and leggings hem are all trimmed in pink picot-edged elastic. It makes for a soft, feminine touch and super easy to do.
