Knit dresses for my daughter!

Update! I bought some cute cotton yarn and tried my hand at another little top/dress for DD!

This time I switched it up and did a seed stitch instead on the hem and yoke! I also crisscrossed the straps and secured with a button! I also experimented with some duplicate stitching to make her initial and added added a little flower. It was a lot of fun and though it's not perfect, I learned a lot and I hope it becomes a nice keepsake for DD.







I had some skeins of baby yarn to use up (it's bernat baby coordinates) that I bought years ago and wanted to make something for DD. I loosely followed this pattern:

Childs Sun Top

I made it a few inches longer and made the bottom ruffly rather than just a straight garter stitch. The yarn isn't great for the pattern just because it's wavy baby blanket yarn, but I still think it turned out nicely and will probably still fit as a top next summer. I am now working on one in some neon rainbow cotton yarn I got on sale at Hobby Lobby. I am also attempting to knit it ITR because I hate sewing seams (first in the round project for me)



My little model







Thanks for looking!

Yeah, she's got a little hair in the back and a high forehead so she is my little cue ball. Cracks me up when people call her a boy, even when wearing "girly" colors . . . as if baby girls are born with longer hair!

My kid has mass amounts if hair, was wearing purple and had a crocheted flower head band on and someone STILL called her a boy the other day. Lol!
