It's Finished!

I started this dress for April back in July and then didn't work on it for months. A few weeks ago I decided to just finish it. Even though it is a summer dress I thought she could wear it as a jumper. I'm so relieved to have it finished.
I used a pattern from the Debbie Bliss magazine. The yarn is organic cotton. It's actually a pretty easy pattern but it's time consuming. I'm not a huge fan of the yarn, it pulls really easily. I shortened the skirt by 2 inches from what the pattern recommended. I wanted April to be able to wear it but not trip when she crawled. It's actually the perfect length.

Sorry it doesn't photograph well on the hanger but you get the idea.


  1. Yeah! Great job! I am always so impressed with knitting as I just do.not.knit.

  2. Such a cute dress! And that was so smart of you to make it shorter for crawling!
