*This outfit was worn by Kirsten in the book Kirsten’s Surprise*.
Kirsten's original St. Lucia gown is made from thick, plain cotton. The newer version is lightweight flannel. The dress is longer than any of Kirsten's other dresses - it comes to her ankles. It has delicate, pretty lace trim on the neck and sleeves. The sleeves are wide and come to a kind of point at the end. The dress has an elastic waist and a velcro patch on the back of the waist to velcro on the sash. The sash is woven and matches the hair ribbons. The sash is tightly woven and a very nice Christmas red color. The hair ribbons match her sash. The socks are red with horizontal white stripes. They are softer than her other socks and get fuzzy over time. The old ones I have look less like crew socks than the current ones. They are very unique and really Swedish looking. I really love this dress and Kirsten wears it as a night dress when the weather is cool but not cold enough for flannel.
