Girly girl.

Posted by 2ton Inspired on November 2, 2008

For a long time I’ve been eying this dress from Garn Studio. When we found out we were having a girl I knew it was the perfect keepsake to make. I’m hoping she will fit it for her baptism. It seems a bit large but I’m thinking the ribbon can be pulled in to fit snugly. Of course I was inspired by another user on Ravelry to create the poufy sleeves and to add a few extra inches to the length.

Baptismal Gown

The pattern called for size 3 needles but not having any on hand I went ahead and used size 5, but seemed to come out with the same gauge. I also skipped the crochet border for the sleeves and bottom since the dress seems pretty girly as is.

Overall a great pattern and pretty easy to make. I can’t wait to see the baby in it!

    I think yours is much sweeter and cuter than the original. Well done!
