Hitty Madge is thinking about her trip to New Zealand and checking out which clothes in the Hitty wardrobe actually fit her. Not many do as it turns out, but fortunately our person with the help of Hitty Ethel, has been busy sewing for her. Generally we are all very happy to share, but being a main travel companion comes with responsibilities and apparently the need for their own wardrobe....Hmm...we are not sure we all agree with this, but we do have plenty of clothes for the rest of us, so are happy to accept this for now. Most of us shudder at the thought of a 25+ hours plane journey and all of us travelled a long way to get to England anyway, so we have done the travelling thing anyway.
So back to working out what Hitty Madge needs.
Today Hitty Madge decided that one of the dresses made the other day, just wasn't really suitable.
It is just a bit tight around the arms, so Hitty has donated it to us less
big boned more petite ladies!
To replace this dress another was made for her today.
This dress is a much better fit and has more ease for movement and Hitty Madge looks rather stunning in it we all agree.
The dresses below are those that have been made especially for Hitty Madge
Most were made in the last couple of weeks, but the Kimono was made last year as was the acorn dress.
Of course her rain cape - here you can see the tiny teddies lining.
These two dresses weren't made specifically for Hitty Madge, but they fit her well and will be ideal for the warmer weather in NZ.
I knitted this a while ago, and it does fit Hitty Madge, but I might make another slightly longer for her.
She will probably borrow these as they all seem perfect for sunnier weather.
She tries on the swimwear for size - not a bad fit at all!
This was the lovely dress that we received for the Real Hitty Birthday swap celebrations and we all agree that Hitty Madge should have it as she looked so delightful in it.
Now we can't remember who arrived in these, but thought that they will do nicely for sleepwear or underwear as the need arises.
So what else does she need we wonder?
Certainly she will need a journal to record her holiday as we will all want to hear and read about it when she gets home.
We are guessing that she may need something warmer 'just in case'...
