FO Wrap Dress for a Sweet Little Girl
I made this dress for a friend's little girl for her birthday. I also made a matching headband and purse. The dress and purse both came from the book Barefoot Knits...great book!! The headband, I just made up a pattern with crochet. Overall I am happy with the headband and purse...the dress is too big and wonky. I think my gauge might have been off. I think I am going to get it back from her and put a ribbon in it to make it a bit tighter.

Very nice! My first sweater for my grand daughter was a bit off too. I think it takes time to hone these skills. The combination of dress, purse and headband is so cute.

Hey I think its CUTE! Putting a ribbon around is a great idea to make it more 'fitted'. But if it's a bit too big, she can grow into it.
GREAT WORK!

I don't think it looks wonky. That style seems like it should fit loosely. Looks very nice. Cute little accessories.
