Okay, so I haven't tried this on my daughter yet. But I sure love the look of this wrap dress -- one of my favorite all-time FOs! I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. I wasn't going to bother with the embroidery, since that's not my forte, but now I'm glad I did.

Pattern is available for free here: http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2008/06/blossom---a-knitted-dress-pattern.html -- Thank you Tiny Happy for sharing!

That looks awesome.

About what size is it, and how long did it take to complete?

I did the 6-9 month size, although the measurements wound up being slightly larger than the pattern indicated (because I always just estimate gauge and wasn't very meticulous about my measuring).

Amazingly, it's knit all in one piece. It probably took me 2 months to knit, off & on, because I also have a 2-year old and can only find random, short blocks of time during which to knit!
