Lovely Melissa from Knitting Sandwich just had a gorgeous little baby girl recently. Since she knit me a gorgeous baby blanket for Max, that I posted about here, I wanted to make something for her in return.
Since I knew that Melissa was having a little girl I was able to pick a girly dress that I’ve had in my queue on Raverly for ages.
It’s the Bloom pattern by Georgie Hallam, which is a great top down pattern that has some additional lace on the body of the skirt.
The lovely thing about this pattern is that even though it’s meant to be a dress it actually grows with the baby/child and turns into a top…how great is that?
Additionally, I made her a pair of my version of Saartjes Bootees in matching colours.
And here’s the dress and the pair of booties in all their glory.
I managed to find a lovely little box to post these to Melissa.
Last week Melissa sent me these two pictures of her little girl, isn’t she just the sweetest? The dress and booties are still a little big, but these pictures are just too cute for words! I am just so happy for Melissa and her family to be sharing their lives with this gorgeous little girl!
