I actually bought the pattern for this dress back in Japan when I first got interested in Thread crochet. We weren’t pregnant yet, but getting ready for it. Then the next baby was a boy, so this didn’t work. Then we had a miscarriage and THEN got pregnant with this little girl. But because of the miscarriage I was nervous to start it, and couldn’t quite get as invested until pretty far along into my pregnancy. Good thing I get manic once I get started. I finished this dress start, restart (the gauge wasn’t quite right and after doing half the top I restarted) to finish took 2 weeks!
Making the under dress was more of a challenge. I had to make the pattern up myself. The dress itself fit great, but the under dress was a bit too tight! But isn’t this dress exquisite? You can’t see it but there are small pink beads crochet into the dress. I bought a second pattern from the same designer. I wonder if I’ll get to make it ever (hint hint hubby!)
It had a sweet little hat too. I should have made it bigger as well, it barely fit around her noggin! We moved when she was 5 weeks old so I didn’t get around to getting her professional pictures taken until she was 2 months old! Luckily it still fit, barely!
These shoes! SOOO precious, but the shoes I made to fit the pattern didn’t even come CLOSE to fitting my Sasquatch. I doubled the footprint size, and it was still too small in the end. But it fit for this one day, and really that’s all it needed to fit for!
