Lovely Lady

In a week we are going to my Mother-in-law's wedding. It's a rather casual affair. Trying explaining that to a hopeless romantic five year old.We found the dress at a resale store. It fits her beautifully and looks great on her. We decided she needed a something for her shoulders. After much ravelry searching we found the Sheila Cape.
She wanted a fancy button of course. The butterfly is a mock button she sewed on herself. It is really closed by a snap. I also modified the pattern to fit her. It's done on smaller needles and I did one less repeat. It's still a bit big across the top but we can just call that the style. The yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton.
She is such a pretty little girl, and so excited.

Very pretty, both the shawl and the little girl. But, of course.
