Lazy Daisy All-in-One Baby Dress

So many of you love my All-in-One Baby Top - and have asked over and over for a similar little baby dress

I am delighted to have finally got around to writing this pattern!

0 - 3 months             Lazy Daisy All-in-One Baby Dress               Medium Premature Baby
 

All-in-One Lazy Daisy Baby Dress                0 – 3 months

Baby Dress               ~    Width 16 -17",   Length  13 ½ "

Requirements  ~  DK yarn,   4mm needles,   3 small buttons

                       

Tips:

        ·     Cast off loosely on row 30 for the cap sleeves – if you find this difficult – use a larger needle

             
        ·      yfwd – yarn forward seems to be a very UK term – you may know this as yo (yarn over) or  yrn (yarn round needle). This makes the buttonholes and also the little eyelet holes on the yoke and skirt border

  16. If black off shoulder dress keeps women a sense of mystery.Then red ball dress shows the neat and pure of a girl.
