WIP Wednesday…

on March 4, 2015

I am still working away on the girls summer wardrobes.  At the moment I am working on an Early Girl Dress and I am in love with this pattern!  I purchased this pattern at least two years ago and never made it.  This was before I really got to understand the differences in yarn materials and knew that a dress crocheted in acrylic would be much too hot for my daughters in our sweltering, southern heat.  Thanks to Ravelry, I now know that there are a multitude of fibers out there that are perfectly suited for wearables for the Gulf Coast Summer.  I am currently playing with Knit Picks Cotlin and I have to say, it has quickly become a favorite work horse for me.  It creates a nice fabric, is cool enough, and best of all, machine washable!  My 4 year old has decided that right now her favorite color is pink, so here is her Early Girl Dress so far…

Such a nice, soft color

Its a bit overcast, so the picture isn’t doing the color total justice.  I am hoping to have this and another one of these done in time for them to wear them on Easter, but I know they will become favorites for the warmer months ahead!

Hope you have a happy, hectic, handmade day!
