A dress thats not a dress??!!

Wierd title i know but i wanted to knit my 3 year old a dress so i searched and googled til my eyes hurt and i finally found a pattern i liked!, sizing was'nt quite right as it went 6 months, 2 years then 4 years so i thought well i'd make it in the 4 year old size.

It used stitches i was'nt used to so it took me about a week to finsh it only to find although i did it to the pattern there is no way its dress length!, unless my 3 year old is ultra tall for her age which she is'nt this can only be classed as a long top! ( unless the pattern maker wanted the knickers to be shown!). so really i'm back looking for another dress to knit!.

I have also decided to try to teach myself crochet, i've always wanted to do a granny square blanket but its soooooooooooooooo hard!.

I'm not going to give up though, i've tried to follow it on youtube but they go soo fast and even pausing it does'nt seem to help!, i'm all fingers and thumbs!. i'll post a pic when i finally get it cracked!!.

  1. Ahh, I think its a lovely dress as well,would look good with perhaps some brightly coloured tights or 3/4 leggings?
