I'm soooooo excited to check this one off my list. This dress has been sitting at the bottom of my "to be completed" pile for about two years now. I originally started knitting it as a possible baby gift for my niece but changed my mind and decided to make her something else. I had resolved to finish it and keep it for my own daughter, hoping that it would still fit her by the time I got around to working on it again. Thankfully, it fits with room to spare!
It's really not the best thing I've ever knitted. The overall look of it is kind of boring (at least the color makes up for that) and I didn't know how to properly increase and decrease stitches back then so there are some pretty wonky parts here and there. Thankfully, Sofie doesn't know the difference so, until she objects to wearing homemade clothing experiments, everything is fine. The pattern for this dress calls for two little pockets to be sewn on the front but I kind of feel like, "Meh." I'm pretty over it and ready to move on.
Oh, and in case you care, the yarn is Lily Sugar and Cream 100% cotton yarn in Hot Orange and Soft Violet on size 7 knitting needles.
