Hansel and Gretel Dress

I knitted an adaptation of the Kaia Babydoll dress a couple of days ago, it was a nice and quick project. I was inspired by the AliGknits version's of this pattern I've seen lately, she recommended casting on in the size smaller and then increasing to the size you want. I did this but there was still a bit too much gaping at the neckline so added shirring elastic, this worked a treat.

I used an 8ply bamboo/cotton yarn called Bella baby layette, doubled on size 6mm needles. I then hand sewed the fabric skirt which was originally a very cute apron I found at an opp-shop.

Tessa really does love her Pusscats and like to make sure they are very well fed and watered.

  1. Hi there, nice to meet you, Jody here from Oakland CA. What lovely little pictures with the cat - too cute!! You can never take too many pics when they're young, you forget how tiny and gorgeous they were...
