so about a year ago, i found a pattern in interweave crochet [the spring 08 edition] i was nervous to start it, since its the biggest thing i've done, but i was feeling ambitious, and gave it a shot.
and i thought it would be a nice dress that could be worn all seasons with different accessories. i've been working on it on and off since then, and i finally finished it ANDDD got a chance to wear it at my school's senior mother daughter dinner tonight.

the original pattern was from crochet me. its called babydoll dress and its by Amy ONeill
Houck. i don't usually use the same color as the pattern suggests, but i liked it..so i did!



my mom and i at the dinner!


and finally, my best friend and i


:]

i love it!!! you did an amazing job. i fell in love with that dress when i saw it in the book crochet me, but i don't have the patience yet to do something that ambitious. it looks fantastic -- you should be really proud!

I've never dared crocheting a dress because it seems like it would get ungodly heavy, but yours actually looks amazingly cute!  What kind of yarn did you use?

aww thanks everyone

to the craftster above asked about the yarn i used,
i actually got it from lys that doesnt exist anymore! aah! and it was some italian brand. it was acrylic though, so its not heavy, but i can't block it and i regret that a bit because the bottom curls a little.

Cool.  I've tried big things in wool and cotton, but my wrists suffer ^.^  So does my crappy posture.  Thanks!

wowzers!! This is great. Totally suits you! Looks like it was a lot of work, but very worth it in the end. I may just have to attempt this pattern myself.
