Notes

Making this to match the baby jacket I just finished - The whole ensemble is for Easter.
2/19/10 - Finished! I improvised a little daffodil-ish flower instead of the pattern’s flat flower. It is a little big on my 12 month size daughter now which is what I intended so it would fit her when we get to the warm weather - so the pattern seemed good in terms of sizing.
2/13/10 - I had purchased a yellow for the trim on the dress in the same fiber (Touche) as the main dress to be consistent, but I hate the color and the chunky look of it on the hemline, so I am ripping it out and going to try to finish the hem with crochet edging in the baby yellow I used in the jacket. I’ve put that yarn in to list now instead of the other. The color was too loud and didn’t really look delicate enough for the spring time look I was after.
