I finished this little knitted dress for a gorgeous little girl newly arrived from Ethiopia. Just hoping her cheeks fit through the neck opening!
The neckband has eyelets knitted into it for running a ribbon through. Removable, of course, if you have safety concerns.
I used Debbie Bliss' "Dress with Lace Edging" pattern from The Baby Knits Book. The pattern calls for cotton, but I knitted mine in a very soft wool because that's what I had, and because this baby lives in cold climes.
