A perfect first birthday party dress or christening gown for that precious little baby princess.

This dress is knit from the bottom up with heart lace bordered skirt and a diamond cable bodice. The dress is finished with little puffed sleeves and tiny little buttons up the back. A generous length button panel allows for easy on and off. The bodice is fairly fitted and you will want to allow for 0-1” ease when choosing a size. Insturctions are included for a Christening Gown version as well.

The model in the first picture is 12 months old wearing the 12 month size with about 1” positive ease.

Difficulty: Intermediate - Advanced

Lace pattern is charted and written, the cable is written only. Knowledge of basic cable, lace and short row techniques will be helpful.

Sizing Note: For a smaller newborn/premie baby, I suggest using a finer yarn and smaller needle size to reduce the overall size and lighten the hand of the resulting fabric.
