Why does this one have a name? that's a good question and I'd love to know myself LOL.....I found as I was making ''her'' that I kept referring to the garment as ''she'', and when I asked my Inner Muse why, it only gave me a sensation of each piece I make having ''a life of its own''....and so it was named. And the name ''Eglantine'' kept coming into my mind.....lol.....Why Eglantine? such a funny name for sure.....well, this IS the name of my favorite golden hearted selfless witch, Eglantine from Bedknobs and Broomsticks . :D and since I could not get it out of my head, there it is.
And so here ''she'' is. I do have a plan to dye this lavender, a color I cannot get out of my head either, and I'm working on the dye now, its on the stove, and I am sampling a scrap of the fabric before I dip Eglantine into an Elderberry bath for lavender color. Otherwise, she is just as sweet in my favorite of all time non color, white. These first three pics she was unfinished, but still pretty enough for me to be happy with her. I somehow made it too large and had to remove 4 inches from the wide of the top, I decided to taper it down. I added some crochet work to the front and the ties from seambinding for small bows. Then last I added some ties in the back so I can tie it to my waist as this is a very wide garment, and it looked so feminine tapered to waist.
This is the finished garment, with bows, and finished details.
