Holy mother of pearl, that's cool! Looks a little like your DD might need something like that herself, she sure looks cute and proud in it! I bet that your nephew liked it, but sometimes the young ones just don't have that skill yet. I made something for a 5 AND A HALF (that half was very important) year-old boy last Christmas that he seemed kind of uninterested in, but later learned that he made everyone who came over look at it and made sure they knew that I made it, all of it, just for him.
Looks really great so far! I would add necklaces and rings if you can and wear plain black shoes of some sort. I'd imagine dark stockings would be more authentic. Speaking of authentic, I don't think gypsies ("Roma" is the actual name) wear a dot or jewel on their forehead, but am not completely sure.
Adorable color & button choices! If I was a knitter I think I'd be addicted to these, too! Isn't it weird how you lose your counting ability sometimes in the fabric or craft store? I try to make lists and sometimes I even remember to bring them!
Those are striking and lovely. I really like how you've taken the popular bird theme and expressed it in a completely fresh way that doesn't say "mid two-thousand oughts" at all. Your theme is timeless.
