I finally finished this little dress for Chloe, and I think it turned out pretty cute in spite of the several points of agony I had with the pattern. I have chosen to overlook the mistakes, and just be proud that I finished the troublesome old thing before she outgrew it!Â Â

oh. my. gracious. the cute-ness… sigh… i love the little bustle-y sort of thing in the backâ™¥
That dress is incredible! Chloe in it makes it even better. I’m fifteen and I love to sew, though it happens more in the summer than during the school year. Did you knit the material?
Camilla – yes, it is knit!
Great job Rachel!
BTW, I really think you ought to have a caption contest for the first photo!
Oh, to live in Moscow…There MUST be more than 24 hours in a day! Is it a Rowan pattern?
Martha- It is by Lois Daykin ( a Rowan designer), and using Rowan cashsoft yarn. But it was not published in a Rowan book, it is in her own book called Baby Knits.
great job! the dress is beautiful!
Way to go Rach! I love the those ruffles on the back!
Very darling, Rachel! So is Chloe. I love the butterfly wings and pink boots. 🙂
So cute, and I LOVE the addition of wings. 🙂
Oh Rachel, you do beat all! That is adorable.
It’s very cute. She looks like a J-Crew model, but isn’t, which is why I find it to be all too clever.
She looks ever-so-proud to wear it and I guarantee that she thinks it’s perfect!
Love the pink boots! The dress is darling too:o)!
George said, “Wow, that’s tinkerbell.” =)
Oh my goodness Rachel, that is sweet. I love it! Particularly the layered gathers in back. Mistakes or no mistakes, that is a treasure!
