I’m so excited, and I’m so glad that this dress’s come out just as I wanted it to! I saw the pattern for Clara dress, and I loved it. But I didn’t want to order the yarn with it. On top of that, the yarn I planned on using was a very different weight. So I set out to make my own.
It’s knitted in the round, top-down. I lost the notes I made, but I can recreate the pattern if there’s any interest out there. I also plan to make a warm cardi based on the same principle.
I’ve defined size as 12 months, since my girl now (6.5 months) wears store-bought clothes in size 9-1 months, and the dress fits her loosely, and will hopefully last a couple of months still – until the end of summer if I’m lucky.
There were were quite a few mistakes, which are corrected now.
