    About

    I wanted to get something for my daughter's first birthday that wasn't too expensive. I found that I had some pretty pink and white yarn around home and knew it would look so cute on her. So I searched Pinterest for inspiration on something that she could wear. I searched all sorts and finally found this dress. It was so beautiful and pretty I knew that was what I would make her. It was perfect, not too hot not too cold, just right to survive the tropics and it had pineapples, who doesn't love pineapples. I got the pattern and checked the measurements, it would fit my girl. Then I checked how much yarn I would need, I had heaps, enough to make 2 dresses (or so I thought). I started in my project, first feeling disappointed coz it looked too small then freaking out coz it looked so much bigger, but finally I finished it and it is just so perfect, not too big but with some room for her to grow so she can wear it for a while. Last things were to add a satin slip, ribbon and buttons.

    Needles & Hooks

    • Crochet Hook 4.00mm (US 6)

    Accessories

    • Tapestry Needle
    • Buttons

    Measurements

    Notes: I made the smaller size with 56 sts for the neckline. I added a couple rows after the yoke so the ribbon wouldn't be right under the armholes and give the placket some extra support. I also changed the skirt border and tacked a slip inside.
