I really need to find a better place to take my photos because you can't see the real colors in the dress...
Its a very pretty yellow cotton with pink and green slub like colors in it... The Buttons are three pink butterflies....

Now The Dress is My New Version of the Oat Couture Top that I made a few weeks ago...

I did a picot cast on and some garter rows then straight stockinette stitch until the bodice.. The did the garter stitch....went around and finished the front and only did the button opening for the top part instead of all the way down....
I finished off with stockinette stitch and did a picot bind off....
After I finished I did a crochet picot around the sleeves... So I guess we can call this.....
My Oat Couture Picot Dress !!!!

My friend Dorethea saw it and will probably be making one for her Grandaughter as well..

So.. What do you think Lisa ???? I finished the challenge to make the Oat Couture into a Dress !!! How about you ??? :)

It is very pretty and I can see the colours. Your knitting of baby stuff are always beautiful, I think it is because full of heart.

I really like how you changed this pattern. In fact, I like the 'dress' much better than the 'sacque'...isn't it fun to see what a change here, and there will do to a project? So many ideas that it spuns on!
Thanks for sharing!

It's adorable. I like the changes you made.

Heya Penny!
Looks like while I was galavanting around at a lake cabin with my hubby for a week you beat me to the punch with making the "saque" into a dress!
Looks great! Just the kind of dress I love for little baby girls!
Great job!

What a beautiful little dress. If & when I find out what my BBF 5th grandchild will be I will certainly keep this in mind. Great work.
