Check this out! I finished the Pernilla Dress!!!
There was one little (well, big) problem though - I was so excited to have finished the dress one night and put it on Lil the next day and it is SWIMMING on her! Like massively huge - like she'll be wearing it when she is 10! Soooo disappointing, but it is totally my own fault as I didn't bother to take any measurements and dove straight into sewing the size 4-5 years (she turns 5 in a couple of weeks so I thought it was going to be a snug fit!). I've since found out that you really have to go by measurements and not ages of kids when knitting. After measuring her, I realise I should have knit a size 1-2 or 2-3 in the chest and then a 3-4 in length! Anyway, I'm hoping that she will be able to wear it eventually and I've learned a very valuable and important lesson in knitting!!!
It will be cute sitting on a hanger in her cupboard for a few more years. Maybe I'll even try it on myself - I think it will probably fit me as a tunic! Ha!!
Thanks to MillaMia and Suzy Hausfrau for the gorgeous pattern book and yarn - looking forward to more knits from the same!
