I started making crochet baby dresses while working on the set of The Bounty Hunter. Don't recommend the movie by the way, but we did alot of shooting in the heat by the water and it made me think of baby dresses..not sure why since I just had a baby boy but.. whateva! This first one I liken to a yacht club baby dress...not sure why, maybe all the white in it. Made some granny squares, connected them and crocheted down from one side, switched to the secondary color for half the rows and then back to the original, made the straps and voila.


This is my favorite baby girl dress that I made, since I made up the straps..I'm sure someone out there somewhere has done it before, great minds and all that but I pulled it outta my...head when I did it. Just made a circle using the same technique as the edging on the dress and kept making one after the other keeping them connected. With most all of my baby dresses (SO EASY btw) I usually just crochet a rectangle for the top and then connect it and pick up stitches on one side and crochet in the round down for the body of the dress adding stitches as I go. Easy peasy, use any crochet technique to do it and then again pick up stiches at the top for the straps. No fear people, just do it, figure it out as you go, I did and look where it got me. No need to get fancy, simple is usually better looking anyways. I wish I had my other pics, I also made matching hats for most of my baby dresses, crochet a small baby hat then add a summery brim by crocheting twice into each stitch for a wavy effect. Cuttest little things ever, make GREAT gifts.

We should all fear evil men, but what we should fear most, is the indifference of good men. On a lighter note..have you smiled today? If you have not, Just DO IT! If you have..do it again!

I love the yellow one!  It's so summery and fun, especially the border.  We still have snow on the ground (heck, it snowed yesterday!) so it's affirming to see that bright yellow and think, "yeah, summer will get here... eventually."
