Thank you for all the compliments! And yes, it did take much dedication- i loved making this dress so much...
I have never thought about combining fabric with crochet... I have *no* sewing skills whatsoever.. but that sounds like something really fun.. I think maybe I will go check some sewing books out of the library!
And yes, I do sell my patterns! In fact.. I have 2 more little dresses in yarn coming out... this was the first of the 3 that i did and is out of testing. There are pictures of the other 2 dresses that I have coming out that are currently in testing..
I have patterns for free and sale at my site: http://www.crochetgarden.com
So far it seems everyone loves this dress so far!! I think it looks like a real angel dress... I have already now packed it away for my daughter for when she gets older
I am glad I made it in so many sizes (size 0-5!) So now I am going to have to make her more every year! lol
