***** This outfit won 1st prize, the Cup for the best exhibit in the Handicraft classes and the Silver Medal in my local horticultural show on Saturday 11th August 2012.*****

I have designed and knit this outfit to commemerate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (60 years) which was celebrated in 2012. It would make a wonderful gift for a baby and can be treasured as a keepsake or heirloom to be passed onto future generations.

This is such a lovely little matinee set which would look so adorable on any newborn babe. It is ideal for a baby girl to wear on a first outing, possibly coming home from hospital. It would make a perfect gift for a baby shower or welcome baby gift.

The matinee jacket is knitted in a traditional style of Diamond lace with a stocking stitch yoke and edged at the neck, sleeves and lower body with garter stitch. There are 3 vintage fisheye ivory buttons (from my Granny's button tin) on the front to fasten. The cap is a modern design with a floppy brim, knitted in the same traditional lace and a crown of stocking stitch with a twisted twiddle at the top.

It is knitted in a lightweight cream / ivory 4ply 100% unused vintage wool.

The actual measurements are~
chest: 18" / 46cm
length of body to sleeve: 6" / 15cm
length of sleeve: 6" / 15cm
Cap circumference: 14" / 36cm (stretches to 16" / 41cm
Brim to top: 5 1/2" / 14cm

I recommend handwashing and flat drying this item. It cannot be machine washed or tumble dried.

Please contact me if you would like this item knitted just for you in a different size or colour.
