Finished!

20140913_171002Hey Look!  That Angel Pop-Over Crochet Dress I was working on, well it’s all done!  All the loose ends have been weaved in (or is it woven in?).  I crocheted a flower and attached it and then sewed a cute pearlescent button in the center of the flower.  I am so freaking proud of this little dress!  🙂  It’s a cute birthday present!

The Little Pink Dress

 angeldress1I finally was brave enough to attempt to crochet an article of clothing.  (No, I never did finish that tank I started many moons ago.) Baby items are so nice to try something new with since they are smaller, quicker projects than the adult versions.  Lucky for me my little niece has a birthday coming up and I found some beautiful pink yarn at the local store the other day.  It was time to try something new and take a risk. 

Of course I scoured Pinterest and Ravelry trying to find the perfect yet simple pattern written in English and free.  I found the Angel Pop-Over Dress posted by Cookie61868.  (Pattern Here)  The above picture was my progress yesterday.  That was the second day I had worked on the project.  As of right now I just have to crochet a flower to then attach to the dress and weave in all the loose ends.  I used a G hook instead of H since I used a Worsted Weight yarn (Caron Simply Soft) instead of the recommended Sport/Baby Yarn.  I am pleased with how it has turned out and how quick and easy it actually was.  I can’t wait to crochet a tutu style dress for my 5 year old! (Christmas Present perhaps?)

Oh!  Here is the dress at the moment:  🙂
