FO: Babydoll Dress

This dress took me about a month to complete. After much frogging, frustration, and time, here she is!

Pattern: Babydoll Dress from Interweave Crochet Spring 2008
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Putty
Amount: 5 balls
Size: 32" bust
Hooks: E, G, H (yeah my gauge is always weird)




Man, I do have red eyes...

And should probably clean my mirrors before the photoshoot...


And here is my take on the classic 1960s sideways tilt angle that I see in vintage crochet/knitting magazines...



Last, but not least, here is the back...



If I ever decide to make another one, I would probably make it in the size 34" bust. I went down one size to create negative ease, but apparently the bodice section already has a bit of negative ease built in.

I love the baby doll dress on you! You look absolutely gorgeous in that dress! I loved it so much, I even showed my hubby. I'm going to have to put this on my list of must do projects.
Great job! It's beautiful on you!

Wow! That's really lovely. Nice job! I so very rarely attempt clothing because of the gauge thing but clearly, yours is just right.

That dress is beautiful! I actually am tempted to crochet a dress, but it'll have to wait until I get some projects off the table. Thanks for your very kind comment!
