I bought a skein of yarn, solely for the pattern on the label. I liked the yarn, too, but I LOVED the dress on the label... Turns out that it's a knitting pattern. It's Bernat, so I went on their website, but they don't have it in crochet there either. I went on a mission to find something similar to it, but I haven't yet. I don't know if I will ever be able to stop looking for it... I love this dress so much!
Well, while I was looking through what seemed like hundreds of patterns, I found just ONE other dress that I liked. This was probably my most difficult project ever, but I still didn't have a hard time with it. The pattern called for two skeins of yarn, but didn't specify the yardage or ounces, so I ended up having to drive 30 mins to JoAnn's two days in a row, to get that one last skein to finish the dress. It took about 3 1/2 skeins of Vanna Baby yarn, but I LOVE it!!!
Well, that's my daughter's first "matching" outfit!
