It is from a book By Elanor Lynn called Cozy knits for cuddly babies:hug:

So pretty! I really like the color. Did you decide to sew it by hand, or by sewing machine?

I had no choice but to sew it by hand as i do not have a sewing machine .
The back seam and the waist are sewn by hand but i had to use iron on bondaweb for the hem because the slightest stich was showing on the outside .
I am glad you liked it !:heart: Thanks !!

Wow, you did a really great job. I can't decide whether or not to buy a new sewing machine (my old one would chew the material, spit it out, and then laugh in my face), or try to sew it by hand. My sewing skills are SO limited, which is why I don't even like seaming a knitted project.

Well , I am not perfect at hand sewing but i managed it . Give it a go and if you can't then you have an excuse to spend some money on a machine .:)

A machine works really well, I just loosened the bottom tension. There is a little screw on my bobbin holder that I turn to do that.

Thanks . I think the hardest part about making this little dress was deciding what colour to use for the yarn and the fabric :)

I love it! Isn't that a fun and fast project to make?
I just love how easy it is, and how beautiful the final project becomes. That's MY kind of knitting project. :thumbsup:
