Share-A-Craft: Bobble Crochet Dress

About 18 months ago, I started a crochet dress for Aubrey from this amazing pattern when we went up to Logan to visit some family. It took forever to finish. I think I took it out three times before being happy with it. Then, I ran out of yarn. It was just some cheapy cotton Peaches and Cream, but every store stopped carrying that color. I checked every last Joann's, Michael's, Walmart, etc, for it, and could not find the darn stuff.

Eventually, I decided to just finish it with white. Which turned out darling, I think.

The other morning, Maxton was helping Aubrey get dressed and he came up with two choices of leggings to go with this dress. Now that she's grown a bit, it's more like a tunic, so it needed the leggings. I absolutely loved it with the butterfly leggings and I'm not sure I would have ever put them together.

Isn't she getting so dang tall? She just turned three. What is she doing with those long limbs? At least, she still has the round baby tummy.

At some point, I'm going to have to make this again, but with nicer yarn.

  1. Love this! And the white was a perfect choice. You have a lot of patience. Bobbles are mind numbing to me.

    Awesome job!


  2. Well, I couldn't knit to save my life so I applaud you!. I love this cute little tunic dress. I just cannot get past how tall she is! How many inches is she? Would love to compare her to Noah who was 4 in March and looks like he is the same height as Aubriana. She is just a doll!

  3. That is adorable!

  4. Ali, just had David measure her and she is 39 1/2 inches tall. No idea how that stacks up. I really need to get her in for a wellness check up. :)

  5. Dang it. She is looking so old in those photos. Sigh. They grow so fast!


Thanks for stopping by! I love your comments and look forward to hearing from you.
