This dress is finally finished. This pattern is from my grandmother's collection and is over 50 years old. She knit one for me 32 years ago and I wanted to make one for my daughter. My grandma was a preacher's wife and she knit this dress for every baby born in the church. I used Louet Gems sock yarn which is beautiful and machine washable. The lace pattern was easy to follow and I love how it turned out. I am very glad to have this connection to another knitter in the family.
