it fits!

I finally finished Akka’s new dress. The pattern is Wisteria Child’s Dress by Angela Hahn. It’s the most ambitious thing I’ve ever knit and it took me a while because I was fiddling with the pattern to make a dress that would fit my girl. The pattern has different sizes and I used a small size but made it longer in the body and with bigger armholes. It’s a little tight going over her head but once it’s on, it fits! Now I’m going to stop feeding her so she won’t ever grow out of it.

  1. It’s gorgeous. SHE’s gorgeous too. You never told us it’s such a pretty colour! Very knice nitting 🙂

  2. A masterpiece! I love the photo where she’s swishing.

  3. Surely the perfect first day of school dress!
    Well done!

  4. What a great color– it looks wonderful on her! I like the longer length too.

  5. Beautiful! I’m VERY impressed. A tip for future projects to prevent the need to starve your child: take a lesson from my mother and make (or buy) everything three sizes too big!
