I have a pattern "Pretty Frocks" which gives several dresses for Sylvanian ladies of various sizes. Now and then I have knitted dresses shown in the collection and put them up for sale and they have been very popular.
I have made the design up in bright red and yellow yarns, and in a dusky green vintage wool. The green wool is a 1930s Fairisle spun wool inherited by myself and as a little girl I can recall my Mum wearing the jumper. She gave me the bag of left-over balls and am delighted that collectors have asked for this version. Fairisle yarn in those days was thinner and smoother and makes a delightfully soft frock. I sell the dresses on my website www.woollywoodlanders.co.uk and from time to time on Ebay and Etsy.
