Angel Wings Pinafore Newborn Dress









Isn’t this baby dress adorable? It was designed by Maxine Gonser, and the pattern is available for free. Click here for the pattern.

I so much enjoyed crocheting this dress. For me there is always something very special and touching about crocheting for little ones.

My husband and I have friends who are expecting their second child some time around Thanksgiving. They don’t know the gender of the baby as they want it to be a surprise. Their first child is a boy, so they have all the needed baby clothing for another boy. However, if they have a baby girl, a girl’s attire will be appreciated. 

So I secretly hope for a baby girl. I’d love to give this lovely dress to her (as well as a few other crocheted goodies).

    1. Hi,

      In the original pattern, Row 5 says:

      5) ch 3. turn. dc in the same st. * skip next st. shell (2dc ch 2 2dc) in next st. repeat from * to end 2dc on top of ch 3 43 shells

      The shell is made by (2dc, ch 2, 2dc) in next st.

      Hope it helps. Sorry, I wasn't able to reply sooner. Good luck making your baby dress :-)
