Cruising the High Seas

A couple more creations for Katie and Kitty.


Tried a new yarn and different lacy stitch on the bottom of the knitted dress, and I think it turned out okay, but I may add a little crocheted edge to the hem.


Kitty forgot her book, so she decided just to sit back and relax.


Slightly different version of my simple dress, using a torn ruffle and hem. Not too sure I like the straps doing up on the outside, I may need to change them, what do you think?

  1. Hello Sandy,
    What beautiful outfits...perfect for a holiday on a ship. I really like both dresses, but I think I agree with you about the straps.
    Big hug

    1. Thank you so much Giac. Yes, you are right, the more I looked at them I realised they need to be inside, so it's back to doing it the old way. :)

  2. What a gorgeous backdrop and definitely has that cruise feel to it. Lovely dresses. Maybe the straps on the inside? Although I think straps on the outside can look good too particularly the way you have it framed there with the decorative button.

    1. This is one of my favourite back drops, it takes me back to my own cruise. :) I really prefer the straps inside Alasse, but I made the button holes in the straps without thinking, when I should have made them in the waistband. Perhaps if the straps had been a lottle shorter it might have looked better, but I'm not going to change them now.

    1. Thanks Niina, I'm glad you think so, but I don't think I will make them this way again, I really prefer the straps o n the inside. It was the daisy buttons that inspired me to make the dress. :)

  5. The girls ARE being spoilt! Cruises, more new clothes!!! ;)
    I agree on the straps, I think I'd have them going to the inside rather than out. But two lovely outfits once again :)

    1. Yes they are Sharon. We try things differently from time to time, sometimes they work, other times they don't, this time it didn't, so I have learnt my lesson and won't do it again. I should really change it, but I can't be bothered right now, maybe when I get sick of looking at it this way I will. :)
