Finished Dress!

Yay! I finished a dress for Mia! I started this in the spring, hoping to have it done by Fall, and I did. I wanted something to work on while taking Emma to her first Bible Camp. It is this pattern, which has long sleeves. I had planned on adding them, too, but when I tried it on Mia first, I love it the way it was.  I will likely make another with sleeves, I still like it that way, too. That first picture is pretty wonky, she was moving so fast, she's translucent, haha! I plan on making a white shift for her to wear under it, but it will be cute with warm tops and leggings, too. In the meantime, it's surprising nice to wear in the hot weather we've been having, too! I love getting projects finished.


  1. Oh my goodness, Michelle, that dress is adorable! I hope to knit a jumper or two for our granddaughters, but I have the worst luck with things fitting them when I'm done. Little Mia looks so sweet in her new dress just as it is, but I can see it with leggings and a long sleeved shirt underneath, too. So cute!

    1. Thank you!! I tend to have the same problem with knit and crochet stuff fitting, probably a gauge issue (because gauge swatch, what?!? *grin*). I have a sweater for my 6 year old that I had to take apart a bit to lengthen, now I'm hoping the arms still fit ok, bleh. This pattern is very forgiving! I have seen several different versions that are also pretty cute, and I didn't work on it all at once, it went together very quickly.

  2. Well done for getting this one finished, it's gorgeous! It fits her perfectly and would be equally lovely worn with leggings and a shirt in the winter. Well done! X

  3. That is a really cute dress, it looks quite tricky to make too. It would look lovely with a white shift under, it to highlight the pretty stitches. Well done!
