I found this really cute knitting pattern for Fiona's top by Ramsilla which is a light weight knit tunic.
I decided to use the pattern for the bodice of a baby dress. The only change I made is that after the arm holes I joined the pattern in round (and dropped the extra cast on stitches) because I hate seams. I did 5 of the lace pattern repeats in the front (6 in the back).
The pattern is easy and adorable.
Here is the finished dress!!! I am in love with it! One thing I may consider if I do this again would be either to not increase the bodice width so much or maybe to add some elastic where the knitting meets the fabric to "cinch" in the waist a tiny bit.
The sparkly buttons on the back are the perfect touch aren't they?
This is the first combined knitting / sewing project I have ever done and I can't wait to try another one!
