Last week I completed an lovely custom order through my Etsy shop!
The request was for a cardigan to match the one worn by Lucy Pevensie in the film of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. This was for a costume for World Book Day, where children are invited to to go school dressed up as their favourite book characters. How exciting!
A beautiful 1940s style piece, this cardigan has a real heirloom feel to it.
Pretty details such as the moss stitch on the shoulders, and the argyle flowers (added using the Swiss darning technique) make it a charming cardigan for a young girl, as well as being perfect for the costume.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this, and it was very kind of the customer to send me a photo of her daughter in full costume!
Head over to the Burgess at Home Etsy Shop to make your own custom request, or choose from my ready-made designs.
The most important thing in my life is my relationship with the God who made me and loves me!
