Last week I showed one of the Taiga Hilliard dresses I have knitted, here is another one.
This is the Marian dress, which is yet another brilliantly written pattern from Taiga Hilliard. Taiga writes her patterns very well, they are easy to follow for American, British and any other knitters.
My favourite part about the patterns is that there is absolutely minimal sewing at the end. for this one it was just adding crochet hoops for the buttons and sewing in ends, and then sewing on buttons, that was it! Brilliant!
I had these sweet little buttons in my stash, they fit perfectly, matching the lacy pattern down the middle of the front and back panels of the dress. Although I don’t think they are very easy to close…oops.
It’s so sweet how the detail of that lacy pattern fans out to create the fuller skirt.
I made this for a really old friend, who is actually the daughter of my kindergarten teacher. She was kind enough to send me some pictures of her sweet little girl wearing her dress.
