Scrap down- Stripy pink dress

My scrap down plans have been a little unsuccessful recently, I keep picking small projects that take an unexpectedly long time. However, this one was a fairly quick and simple pattern to make a doll dress.

Yarn: Hand dyed superwash4 ply in raspberry sauce, either merino or bluefaced leicester

Needles: 2.5mm dpns Mods: Increased the length of each section (skirt, body and bib) to fit doll. Worked one strap from each bib section (front and back) and grafted to held three stitches on opposite part rather than working both from the back and sewing together.

This made a cute little dress, hopefully it will fit as I sized it using a paper outline of the doll. The skirt curls more than I want it to, the pattern instructions work one round of k1p1 rib to avoid this but I think it could have done with more or something like a seed stitch border.


  1. Cute, any little girl would look darling in this!

  2. What a cute dress! I agree with Melissa! I hope it fits!
