the birthday girl’s birthday dress

Because I am crazy, I decided to make E a dress for her birthday. Why is that crazy? Because of when I decided to make E a dress for her birthday…exactly one month before her party. Out of hand dyed fingering weight yarn. Yep. That's me.

Well, despite the short (for me) time frame, I did get it finished! I wove in the ends and sewed on the buttons mere hours before her birthday party, all while holding a newly-sick-with-his-first-ear-infection baby. Poor thing.

The dress is perfect. I mean, just perfect. The colors are perfect (since I dyed the yarn myself), the fit is perfect, the buttons are perfect…it is quite possibly the most perfect thing I've ever knit. Just look at the fit on her wee little shoulders!


The pattern is Nova and I was given a head's up that the pattern runs small and thank goodness for that – I knit E the size SIX and it fits her tall, slender 3 year old frame just perfectly.


Also, THREE? How did that happen?

Happy birthday sweet girl!

  1. Congrats on the cute knit dress! I tried a cute toddler dress and it looked like an alien outfit :-(
    Birthday dresses for our toddler girls are so fun!
