bloom

another test knit, well, this is actually the test garment.


This one is one of mine, and it's called bloom
 ... or if you're four 'The Diamond Castle top'... oh well, at least she'll wear it.  


I'm pretty happy with this one, as is Miss Lily. I think it will be a perfect Spring garment for any little girlie.  


It can be worn either over a t-shirt or just as is, Lily prefers it over a t-shirt.  
It has a little bit of subtle detailing which might be hard to pick up from these photos, but it's there.


And one of the things I like the most about it, is its wide size range. It fits as a dress on a little bub and grows or blooms with the child into a peasant style top for a preschooler.  And yes, that is my beautiful boy wearing the dress ... the things mummas make their sons do, hey.


cute little toes and hem detail, you'd never know they were boy toes, would you?


Here's the dress length on a 9 month old, maybe on the tall side, maybe not, who knows?


cute little capped sleeves ...


Anyway, I need to reknit this dress to test my now written pattern. Just waiting on the right shade of green yarn to arrive. And then once that's done it's off to my test knitters.  


Release date: Spring sometime ;)
