Play dress

My best friend in Canada having a baby girl few month ago, I wanted to knit her a baby dress, but I have no ideas about her size. After looking all over the web, I guess the best choice is Anouk from Knitty.com. It is kind of a play dress..I guess..but with this pattern I don't have to worry about the size, the side is open and it could be adjust on the chest area. I used Rowan all season cotton in dark brown with a dash of pink for the dress, the reason why is.. I hate pastel colour and I don't want it look too princess like. The only adjustment I made on this dress are the pockets, I swap it for a simple heart shape pocket and I think one is cute enough..

With the leftover yarn, I also throw in a Bubby from Knitty.com, it is a very fast knit and is cute... hope she like it.

Just adding my compliments to the others that you have recieved so far. Your knitting is wonderful and your design and color sense is great! I am also very impressed with your command of the English language and am so glad that you are writing your blog in English so that we Canadians can also read it. Thank you for sharing!

I prefer your dress to the orginal one. I like the colors very much. I also made a link to your blog, because I like the things you made. I restarted knitting in September 06. Although I knit since I was a teenager, I still consider myself as I beginner. Have a look at my blog, I don't if you read French, but you can see the things I already knitted.
Have a nice evening !
