"Luck of the Irish"
St. Patrick's Day Outfit for 8" Betsy McCall

Betsy celebrates St. Paddy's Day with a shamrock print spring ensemble.  Underneath it all is a snug-fitting pair of black lycra tights and black shoes.  The dress has a very full skirt, a slightly dropped-waist and a ribbon belt.  The dress is fully lined with a contrasting shamrock print and has pearl trim at the hemline.

It would be hard to find a prettier colleen than Betsy and that's no blarney!

Here you can see a closer view of the elegant shamrock print.  To soften the neckline and echo the pearls at the hemline, I made a set of faux pearls for Betsy that will go with many dressy outfits.  Matching green ribbon is included for a belt and hair ribbon.

Watch out for that breeze, Betsy!  Oh well, at least you can see the sweet print used to line the entire dress.  Also included is a pair of black shoes that fit nicely and will go with other outfits, too.  You know how hard it is to find shoes to fit Betsy!

Look for it! You'll know you have a genuine honeychile design when you find this tiny signature honeybee charm somewhere on a main piece of the outfit. It might be in plain view on the collar, stitched to the inside of the hemline, or hidden somewhere else on the garment. The photo is much enlarged, so you may have to look closely to find this wee messenger which lets you know that the greatest of care went into the design of this special handcrafted ensemble.
