This is a dress I made for my friend's baby who was born last April. I knew I wanted to knit her something, but as her first few months of existence would be the middle of summer, finding a good lightweight pattern was a challenge!

I ended up combining a few free patterns to make this dress, in fingering weight cotton yarn. I wrote down the pattern, however have yet to transcribe it. I will likely put it on Ravelry at some point. The back closure was just chain stitch loops and bunny buttons.

Pictures here, with the adorable recipient as model:

I'm trying really hard to focus on the gorgeous dress, it's just that insanely adorable baby keeps distracting me with cuteness Cheesy!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
