"This is the Dress that Never Ends..."

This was a project that I started over 18 months ago. I called it "the dress that never ends." I started it several times and ended up locating one extra ball or yarn in the correct dye-lot that was needed to up-size it since Miss Knotty was growing faster than I was knitting it.

Well I sewed up the final seam Friday night and the same for the bolero, so I can't call it that anymore! I loved this pattern from the time I was pregnant and said that if I had a girl that I would make it for her. It is from Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits for Beginners. The bolero is from a different source that I can't recall at the moment. I'm not sure what happened here but it seems to not hang on her well. I'm going to have to take the blame for that. I may frog it and try again or try a different pattern all together. I still have some extra yarn in that color. Anyhow, here is my little Easter Darling and was so proud yesterday to see her wearing something I made!





Easter Girl on the Run!




Finally still enough for a front shot.




Now where were those eggs?




Dig the silver embroidered slippers!

OH. MY. GOSH. How great are those pictures? The one with her at the door- classic!
The dress, from what we can see under the jacket, is gorgeous. Excellent job! I can't wait to see the bolero's reincarnation :-0 !

Beautiful job on the dress and bolero - it is lovely! And, yes, I totally dig the silver embroidered shoes ... I wonder if they come in my size?? She is so cute! And I agree with Brooke - she will love those pics when she is older, I know I love the Easter pics my Mom took of me and my sibs!
