The sundress is here:


The bolero is by Knitter's Haven and is called Child's Ruffled Ballerina Shrug. It is a paid pattern. I modified it, as well as the dress to incorporate a picoted edge.

Enjoy and good luck!

I will wish her Happy Birthday from all my friends here. Many of them are the reason she got these gifts. With help and support, I was able to do a lot of things I never dreamed I could do. Thanks to one and all!

I like the way the colors worked out on the little dress and the bolero is just the right mate for the dress. I love your little picot edgings. Good work.

What a cute little set (I'm imagining it on my four yr-old DD :teehee:) and it looks great :mrgreen:

My DGD just turned four so it should fit your DD. My DGD takes a size 5. If your DD takes a 5 then it should fit her. The link is on the first page. I will attach a picture of her wearing it with this post.
