I always wanted to crochet a garment - but I never had the time/motivation to sit and make a whole garment for myself. For one, entire garments made of crochet just isn't really my style - and for another - it is super hard for me to follow a pattern exactly. I blame it on my ADD.
Well, having a baby girl has given me the perfect motivation I need to make her a little baby dress. And what is a frilly dress without a bonnet?
I used this pattern for the bonnet. I warn you - the pattern is full of mistakes. I kinda had to do my own thing to make it work.
And I used this tutorial for the dress. This tutorial, I loved. I learned two new stitches (and here I thought I was an expert at crochet. Ha!). I learned Solomon's Knot and the chainless half-double crochet stitch.
