WIP/FO - baptism dress, UPDATED on page 2
Here it is so far...and the time crunch is on! I'm going to have to be knitting non-stop this week to finish knitting, sew the seams, and sew the hem before DD's baptism on Sunday. Please send good thoughts my way so that my fingers can fly!

I've made some changes to the pattern, including the back opening. Now I think I should've done garter stitch on the edges of the back opening so that it wouldn't curl. Or I should have put in more than 1 eyelet opening for a button (I just made 1 up near the top). Maybe I should sew in a little velcro to help it stay shut/lay flat?

Here is a picture of the dress on the cover of the pattern. I changed the skirt part of the dress to be a feather and fan pattern.
