I started this dress last year... but was discouraged by the excessive amount of knitting in what appears to be 4ply or even smaller.... But last weekend I decided. It has to be done. It is only size 1-2 and my lovely niece is only going to be 1-2 for a few more months! So if she is going to wear it in winter it has to be done now! Plus as I pack up my house for the next move I decided I realllly need to finish some of these projects. So knitting knitting knitting! Until I finished last night!
I used this pattern from pear tree yarn, Mila. But i changed the straps - because it said I could sew them either crossed or uncrossed which would change the length... so I added some length and button holes to the straps and some hand covered buttons:)
I like it.
Excuse the cardboard box background... moving house.
