Crocheted Dress for Anna

Well, it has taken me almost a month from the time I purchased this adorable crochet dress pattern to finish it!  The pattern was easy, but forcing myself to stay focused and on task was another issue.

Now that I have a little girl, I get to make all these precious girly items.  My sweet Anna has the most beautiful big blue eyes.  I think purple looks beautiful on her and brings out those beautiful blue eyes. I love how it turned out!  It helps to have such a precious model too!

Don't you just love her rolls!

The pattern for this dress is called The Piper Dress and is from one of our sponsors RAKJ Crochet Patterns.  In case you missed it, we featured Kristi and her amazing patterns in one of Great Things!  You can read more and see more featured patterns here.  She has a ton of awesome patterns and she regularly runs sales that you won't want to miss!  I made one change to the pattern by adding about 15 rows to the bottom to give more ripples and to help the dress stretch for a few more months.

I also made a headband for her called the Shell headband and attached one of my favorite flowers to it.

I used my favorite yarn, "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby in Amethyst.  It is super soft and easy to work with.

Here is a picture of dress without the beautiful model.

I can't wait to show Anna off in it at church!  She will be so precious!

I am very proud of my first attempt of crocheting a piece of clothing!  It was not near as daunting as I would have thought.  When my sweet Anna can stand up better I will update you with another picture!

Happy Crocheting!
