I've had this little dress in my queue since it was first published in knitty. I wasn't planning on starting it, but I bought the wrong yarn for a different dress for the baby. (This turned out to be a good thing - Topaz only goes up to 18 months, and the other dress is sized into the T's.)
I love the color of the dress. I know that blue isn't always a popular color for baby girls, but this baby girl has beautiful blue eyes that positively glow when she wears blue. The yarn is Berroco Vintage Wool. I enjoyed working with it, but I don't think it was a good match for this pattern. The pattern uses a size 9 needle, and every not perfect stitch and decrease is entirely too obvious for my taste. (The trim is Paton's Classic Wool, because I had some in my stash.) I followed some notes from others on Ravelry and knit the dress in the round (why would anyone knit something so simple flat? That's way too much purling!) The pattern lived up to it's introduction by the designer - it is a quick and easy knit, and the baby sure looks cute. I have to say though, I don't love it, and I don't think I would make this dress again.
