This is beautiful. I love making baby dresses. I gift them, well them and make custom orders.I am sure this will be a very popular onpe. Lucky for me it's a very easy pattern. And since the holidays are coming , so the colors will be more christmasy.Thank you for sharing.

Heirloom quality, absolutely for sure. It is so nice that we can access the pattern directly above instead of having to click an external link. Overall, it looks to be fairly easy to work up, considering the looks of it- so intricate and delicate! I am loving the sage green accent color she used. But, you could certainly do any color you wanted. Yellow is a pretty choice.

Well, my eyes or my computer are making me see the body of the dress as an ecru color. But I think it is actually a yellow. So, in that case, you cannot use a yellow in place of the green accent color, because then you would have the entire dress all one color!

What a cute Easter dress. This reminds me so much of a little dress that I wore as a baby based on some of the family pictures I have seen. My mom crocheted for as long as I can remember and she was always making me new clothes. I cant wait to try to make one of these for one of my little ones.

I really like the look of this. I'm trying to find a dress to make for our granddaughter. Shells are easy to crochet so I think this should be a nice look and fit for her. I think I'll get her measurements and try it out. I like that there are several sizes in case I want to make it again.

An absolutely darling dress. Would make a perfect little dress for Easter, which will be here very soon. Yarn with bamboo is something I have never used before. I am looking to broaden my crafting this year so I would love to make this dress with this type of yarn. I am a little confused about the collar shown in the picture and how to incorporate that into the instructions we are given.

Oh yes this is a must pattern. Mainly because it's do versatile. I love the ones that people have made and posted. The black and white is just so sheek for a little miss. And we know what Coco Chanel said, you can't go wrong with a little black dress.

So lovely! A handmade dress would make a really nice present. I don't have sport yarn and I'm wondered if Red Heart Soft yarn would be a good substitute. I don't want to use medium weight because I think it might get too bulky. The little collar is an adorable addition.

This is the sweetest dress for every little girl in the family. I love that the pattern is written in a variety of sizes, I made matching dresses for two of my nieces that are cousins, one is 6 months and the other is 24 months. They will look so cute in their picture with the Easter Bunny this year. The light weight yarn really works up so soft and delicate, love the fact that it isn't a "bulky" dress.

I would like to make this for my granddaughter. It is so lovely. Thanks for placing the pattern on the front page so it is easier for us. I will pin this.

I wish I saw this sooner - this would have been DARLING for my goddaughter. Maybe next year.. )

I made this for my great niece. She loves it! Thanks for sharing this pattern.

I made this for an expected great, great, grandchild in pale pink and lavender. It is so lovely. Thanks warmly for the pattern it is a real keeper.
