I kind of have a girl-crush on Tanis....she makes the prettiest yarn, designs the sweetest patterns, is a master at photographing them, and she has a very cute little one year old boy who doesn't look half as bratty as my munchkins ;)
When I saw her release the Sproutlette pattern, my heart skipped a beat. I think it is the cutest baby girl dress EVER. Because let's face it, knit dresses can go the way of....tacky. But this one is just precious. Especially paired with her lovely pink grapefruit yarn. A few friends were expecting babies and I knew one was bound to be a girl, so I cast on.
This one was slow going. It uses a finer yarn than I normally choose, and there are a lot of details to pay attention to. But as you see the shapes unfold- pure magic. The leaf hem, the eyelets, the button closure on the keyhole back- all such amazing details.
A little girl was born recently and this sweet little dress will be gifted to her. I hope she likes it!
