I made this dress for my little grandniece. It is a size 3. It was made entirely from materials I had just lying around, up to and including the three little blue buttons from my button jar that fasten the back of the bodice. I used the basic idea for a child's sleeveless sundress from pattern #28 in Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 1990, but my version is quite different — there's a completely different pattern on the bodice, and the colourway is nothing alike.



And then, as I often do when making a sweater or a dress for a little girl, I whipped up a matching accessory. It's a good way to use up those odds and ends of material one always has left over, and the little girls who get the items are often much more enthusiastic about the accessory than they are about the main garment.
