|Emily sitting pretty on our shelves|
Emily's dress is adapted from the Safari Dress pattern. The purple wool is James Brett's Top Value DK, an acrylic that is nevertheless soft to knit with (#8431 Lilac). Purple is Caitlins' favourite colour and the wool came from the stash of my grandmother-in-law, the much loved matriarch of the family who died last year. For the trim I wanted something fluffy and this certainly was that, it's Beregere De France's Plume #2010. It was very slippery to knit with but was only for a short stretch.
