Franklin Habit's Dolores #3 Transatlantic Travel Ensemble Kit by Fiona Ellis includes the PDF pattern download and all of the Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed Fine and Valley Yarns Huntington yarn needed to create this luxurious cabled sweater (with detachable sailor collar) and pleated skirt. The kit also includes sensible but stylish galoshes and a luggage tag—perfect for the ewe on the go. Note: Dolores doll is not included with outfit kit.

Fall is upon us, and often brings out the wanderer in Dolores. When she felt the old, familiar tingling in her hooves, she summoned internationally renowned designer Fiona Ellis to whip up something suitable for a wild transatlantic crossing aboard the Cunard liner Queen Mary 2. It's the only way to cross, Dolores will tell you–especially when you have designs on the suave piano duo appearing nightly in the ship's theater.  "I want something that will be keep me warm when I'm wet," said Dolores, "but still show off the curves." "I know just the thing," said Fiona. And behold: a sweater and skirt pairing that pays homage to the elegance of the golden age of the ocean liner, but is sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of modern travel. A pair of sturdy galoshes protects the hooves during walks on deck in boisterous weather, and provide additional traction when chasing sailors around the deck in any weather.

Please note that the boots are available in assorted colors; we will choose for you.
