Over the last year, I have designed quite a few baby blankets. I also have made tons of doilies. I feel now it’s time to venture into something new. Perhaps crochet baby dresses?
I’ve only made a few of baby dresses in the past using other people’s patterns. But of course I want to learn making my own designs.
So here is my first attempt.
I am both pleased and disappointed with it. I’m pleased because it looks cute and the pattern is not complicated, but I’m disappointed because my baby dress didn’t come out its intended size. I made a mistake by choosing worsted weight yarn while I should’ve used something lighter. The intended size was 0-3 months, but the finished size is about 12 months. What is more, the dress came out somewhat heavy and bulky.
I’m going to make this same dress with light worsted or DK yarn instead. I’ll share the results with you later.
