Wow, I really love this pattern and you did a great job with the colors! I have a little girl but I'm too much of a novice to attempt something like this. Congrats on your wee one!

in all honestly, this is only the second major project I've undertaken.  There isn't too much that's overly difficult, or that you can't learn as you go... whether it's the decreases, buttonholes, or picking up stitches, it's all fairly logical (the pattern could use some cleaning up, but if you read it over very carefully it's all there) and tutorials abound on the internet.

The biggest challenge (despite my initial surprise at it's simplicity, ha!) is the Intarsia, and they suggest duplicate stitch as a way to deal with it if you don't want to do intarsia... basically embroidering over a plain pocket.

And the greatest thing of all is that it's a small item, so it doesn't take you forever.  I used exactly one skein of yarn (200m) to make a 6mo dress.  ONE SKEIN!!!  how awesome is that?

I love yours, cdngreenie! Love the buttons and the unusual colors -- it's such a fun pattern and you can totally make this your own. You could do a completely different design on the pockets to change it up, too.

Great job!

I love your choice of colors.  Looks great!

(I've had my eye on this pattern for a while)

haha, thanks!   Grin  I love the buttons too, there were the last three at my LYS (no idea where they came from or anything) and they were, thankfully, PERFECT for the job!

I agree, it's definitely a versatile pattern.  It's going in my book for future reference, because I'm sure someone's going to have a little girl in the future, and, well, I just LOVE this dress!
