I have been loving all the crochet baby dresses that Alicia Paulson has been making up. Actually, all the dresses, she has been sewing up too. So when she put up a call to have some pattern testers, I signed up for any dress, any size, please count me in! I ended up with her Saskia dress in a 6 month size! Yahoo! a hippy dress for Janey!
It was such a nice break from knitting Jane's blanket, which has been a pretty long process but I just started on the 6th (out of 6) skein last night! So I hoping by the end of the week that project will be done, because several little things are waiting patiently. Working on this dress though, I did forget how quick crochet is compared to knitting, plus wee sized baby things = fast fast fast!
Pattern: Saskia dress; coming soon from Alicia Paulson
Yarn: Summer Linen DK in five colors: natural, taupe, kiwi, sky blue, steel blue
I tried the dress on a 9 month old neighbor. It was a bit long on her so I folded up the bottom and created a little hem with some slip stitches, a nice little border of color.
I really like this dress but I am wondering how the sleeves will work on Jane. They are super cute and wide just not sure how little Jane's arms will fair in there. I am guessing Jane will wear this in winter with a long sleeve onesie and tights! I can't wait! I wonder which sweater she will choose to wear with it??
