Baby dress

The dress is done. The flower is done. So close to completely done, but not quite there.

Yes, all I need to do is sew the flower to the dress.

Due to some iphone contact issues, 2 days off of school for my 10-year-old (conference time), and a whole bunch of cub scout stuff to do (newsletter, awards, 2 articles for local paper), as well as actual paid work—well, maybe I can find 10 minutes to get this sewn together.

The dress is Sweet and Swingy Dress by Ellen Gormley, Crochet Today May/June 2009. I made the size 6 months.

The flower is Flower Accent by Mimi Alelis (I made a solid center rather than use a button).

Bookwise, I am still reading the same three books—Ivyland (which I give a solid "meh", I am hoping it pulls together in the final 90 pages); The History of the World in Six Glasses (disappointing for me the history major); and His Family by Ernest Poole (good, this is my "emergency" book on my phone, otherwise I would be done!).

  1. Oooh - crocheted baby dress - where are you going to sew the flower?

    I really need to pull my finger out and make some dresses whilst she's still tiny that I actually finish them (as I end up frogging the ones I've made for my very much taller 9 year old!)

  2. What an adorable dress! Blue tone on little girls is my favorite!

  3. Very sweet dress and flower. I haven't tried to crochet a clothing item yet but I should try. I had to check your blog out after reading your comment on Simplify that the checking your reader is the third thing you do after email and facebook. That is my morning routine as well. If I have time I do Pinterest as the fourth thing but I haven't been as into lately. I also have a small blog but I have much fewer followers than you. Maybe google will change it's mind.
