Waru what a lovely little dress AND baby :O)
Have to make a new baby now ;O)
Adorable! I'll be coming for it on payday...too cute. And sized big enough to fit both of my girls!
Adorable! Must make this! Too bad most of my friends have baby boys!
It's so cute on the baby! Are you going to show us what it looks like on a bigger girl as a vest?
Thanks for the question, Megan. I should have explained what I meant better. If you crochet the pattern as is, it will be a dress in length. Then next year you can crochet a new collar and replace it with the old one on the jumper, and it becomes a vest. I do not have another sample made. I am going to wait till CJ grows out of this one I made, and switch out the collar for her next fall to make it into a vest.
