I am finally done knitting this dress and hat for my DD. It took me months and was beyond my abilities. It's not perfect but I am very proud of it and most importantly so is she ;)...

Thanks you guys. I should have posted that it is a very adapted version of a pattern in a 1997 Family Circle Knitting Magazine.

How did I miss this? :inlove: She is too cute and so is the dress and hat! Great job :yay:

So, so cute!! I love the place on the skirt, front and back, where it has the bear and then the block below his head continues so that it looks like his body and he is wearing a scarf. That is such a one of a kind dress. I love it. The hat is wonderful too, right down to the curliques on top. Great job. Your daughter is precious.

Wow! what a really cute idea! I love the pattern you put together!

Thanks, but I can't take credit for it really. It came from a pattern by Nicky Epstein in an old 96/97 Family Circle Knitting magazine. Then I changed it a bit to suit my needs (ie make it easier LOL) the original pattern is even busier with flowers embroidered on some of the squares, colored scallops along the bottom of the skirt and hat and the colored nubs throughout the top and hat. it also had sleeves and buttons up the back. So I just made it easier for me to finish since the actual pattern work took me so long I was ready to cut it short by the time I got to the top. LOL

That is amazing!!! I think if that were up to me to make, my DD would have it when she graduated college (she's 7-1/2 now).

That is so cute! You did a beautiful job

02-11-2009, 07:02 PM
OMG! This little creation is adorable, as is your DD!
This would sell for lotsa money in a children's shop!
IF you could find something so cute!!!
