I made this dress for my 16 mo old granddaughter.  She was absolutely adorable in it although her Daddy said she looked like a "walking doily"!

This dress pattern was downloaded from Annie’s Attic Frilly Frocks collection (with four other similar patterns); I made the “Sherbet” dress.  Since I had plenty of crochet thread left, I made the hat from a vintage 1940’s pattern and added the bottom trim to match the dress trim.  I used Bernat Crochet Thread #5 in “vivid violet” and “white”.  I’ve always used all cotton thread for these types of projects but this brand is 100% acrylic.  It was easy to work with, had a nice drape, and soft texture.  I really couldn’t tell much difference from using cotton.

LOVE it! Your granddaughter is soooo cute.
