I made this little dress for my grandniece Cauliflower for Christmas 2009. There were also little Mary Jane style shoes to go with it, but they were far too large at the time this picture was taken and had to sit things out until the next year, when the dress had become a sweater. You can see that the sleeves are rolled up in this photo.

The pattern is a Debbie Bliss, from her book Cotton Knits for all Seasons:

I adapted it a little. The dress pattern had hearts and bobbles worked into the bodice. I replaced the bobbles with these rose motifs, which I took from another Debbie Bliss book, Nursery Knits.

The rose motfis were supposed to be knitted in, but I just used the Swiss darning/duplicate stitch technique to add them once the dress was done. Much faster and less hassle than intarsia and looks just as good.

Cauliflower isn't her real name, though I do actually call her that - it's a pun on her name.;-)
