A coworker of mine just had a baby girl and that fits in perfectly with my personal challenge of seeing at least one baby in something I’ve hand-knit. So far the last few items have been a bust: baby born bigger than the clothes, parents think the item is wool so they don’t put it on the baby because it was spring/summer, and I have no idea how the booties went over. Don’t people dress their babies like kids do dolls and change their clothes several times a day?
Since I like a challenge I went ahead and knitted another dress for baby.
I used felt buttons because they were different and I went big on size so baby can grow a bit into this one.
Yarn used: Bernat Cotton-ish in Cotton Gin Colorway. It’s a soft yarn with a nice drape and…affordable!
Please, oh please, let baby wear it for just a few hours if anything!
