Is there anything sweeter than a handmade piece of baby clothing? I'm obsessed with knitted and crocheted items for V's wardrobe and this beautiful hat from Dottie & Rose's Crochet Boutique*, is no exception. Dottie & Rose is a small business run by a fellow Mama, Rhiannon.
I'd been in touch with the lovely Rhiannon after seeing a post on Facebook. We got chatting and Rhiannon kindly offered to make Violet a very special item for baby wearing. We discussed colours and I really wanted something a little different to those you find on the high street and this rust colour fit the bill perfectly. Rhiannon had the idea of the pixie-style hat and I immediately loved it.
Rhiannon was so professional and kept me up to date with the progress all the way through. I'm rubbish at crochet and I'm always in awe of those that can do it well, the hat is just beautiful and so, so well made. I adore the added Pom Pom detail to the tie and I think you will agree, it just looks adorable. The hat was made oversized to ensure Violet got a good amount of wear out of it. It fits so well now but I'm pretty certain it'll still fit her nicely next Winter too.
I can't rave enough about how impressed I am with this piece for Violet's wardrobe. I love one of a kind, unique items and this hat is certainly one of those. I will certainly be ordering from Dottie & Rose in the future and supporting a gorgeous small business!
