Miss Ruby Red.





Credits.
Model: made by me and the Farmer Boy.
Red cardigan: knitted by me, raveled here.
Buttons: vintage wooden from a garage sale.
Outfit: models own.
Hair: deloused, washed and brushed by Foxs Locks. (Does that sound like one of those tacky hairdresser names?)
Make up: mostly rubbed off on long car journey from home, still a bit of lippy on I think.
Tree: found somewhere in Melbourne, next to a playground, on the way to a wedding.
Crew: big sister watching from a nearby swing, small sister asleep in the car, Dad watching small sister and playing with his phone.
Photographer, director and all round bossy boots: who do ya reckon.

  7. OH my goodness Kate, LOVE it!!!
    Stunning colour, stunning model, stunning pattern, stunningly made.
    xo
    PS most directors are bossy boots, they have to be in order to create good art ( tell them that next time you get a complaint)
    PPS I know I grew up with one
    PPPS, i seriously am a tad envious of miss Jazzy about that cardi, and that fact she looks so gorgeous in pics

  9. Very pretty on Miss Jazzy! I think red suits her perfectly too. I do love her Pumpkin Patch skirt. I have to say that mine is still awaiting the buttons to be sewn on and now having finished another test knit I have to now sew on 2 sets of buttons.

  10. You have a beautiful, beautiful daughter. She looks absolutely gorgeous in her cardi and other clothes. She strikes a great post too. :) Hold on to these precious moments, they grow up way too fast.

  12. Are Foxs Locks open for business? I have a couple of customers here who need an appointment. Love the photo of Jazzie, she looks so much older. That raspberry cardi is the loveliest colour xo

  13. Hah! Foxs Locks!
    I love how youre always talking about delousing the girls hair.
    I used to make my own highly potent oil to save money as the shop ones just didnt cut it.
    Jazzy is a stunner especially in red! She'll possibly want an entire red wardrobe after this. Heres a not so well known fact, Mu used to only wear green for the first 7 or eight years now he wont wear it at all!
    Loving your bedding and cant wait to see your doona cover, x

  16. Haha on the bossy boots. Your daughter looks gorgeous in that red cardi. Foxs Locks prob sounds better than Foxy Locks.

  22. Cardi is gorgeous, as is the model. If you whipped up a faux fur trimmed hood she would be the funkiest version of Miss Red Riding Hood ever.melx

  29. Gorgeous! Great to see this properly after seeing some in-progress pictures on Rav.

    I must say the trend for only having top buttons is lost on me, though. My February Lady Sweater was great when I was pregnant but now it's way too drafty :)

    Safe travels to you all!

  33. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to start my
    own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something
    unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but
    I had to ask!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
