I made this little dress for my friend’s little girls first birthday, you might remember seeing her in the cable coat recently. It’s the Drops pattern that I also used when I made this for the little girl of an old client of mine.
I love this pattern, I was a little worried about the lace-like pattern of the skirt initially as it seemed like it might be really difficult and I’d have to pay real attention to it. However, that wasn’t the case, it actually flew off the needles.
The lace-like pattern at the top was also really easy to knit and I finished it surprisingly quickly.
I love the wrap over style of the dress, I bet it’s really handy to put on as it probably slides over the head just like that.
I do like the colour, but when I ordered it initially I thought it would be a bit darker, but I think it actually looks really nice.
And I added the crochet flower at the end, it just adds that little bit extra.
I am still hoping to get a picture of Sophia wearing it, as I’m sure she’ll look gorgeous in it.
