This is a dress that I just fell in love with and had to knit. I'm pretty sure that the pattern was from a Woman's World magazine sometime in the mid '80s (they used to have a knitting pattern in every issue, don't know if they still do). I learned more from knitting this dress than probably any other project I've ever knit. I didn't have a recipient in mind and, as far as I know, no one has ever worn it except for dolls. It's knit in the cheapest possible yarn, I'm sure, and I'm guessing it would fit a 1-1/2 year old.
