I knitted this dress while during our month in corporate housing, when my sewing machine was still packed up, when I needed some sanity over lunchtimes, and when I could successfully ignore the lists of things we had to do to set up our new life.
I've made it before here, which made it easy to whip another one up in no time. I love the back ruffle, and would love to see it on a little person (which one will it be?) who is new to walking, come winter.
I can picture it worn with red tights, so I attached some red buttons to the back closure, to match my imagined outfit. It would also be great with a special cardigan!
I love knitting items multiple times. It just seems to come together more easily, and the pattern adaptations I make the first time really help me along. All my Ravelry details are here for the old one and here for the new one. The back:
This one is going in the "deep freeze" (as Nigella would say), meaning a ziplock bag with the air squeezed out, awaiting it's future wearer at a time when 100% wool is more appropriate!
