When we were in Switzerland we stayed with friends from Japan who are now living in Basel. They were such fantastic hosts, and I wanted to make a little dress for their daughter to send over with a thank you card.
I used the bodice from the Geranium Dress in size 12-18 months, but improvised the skirt - I cut the fabric accross from selvedge to selvedge, sewed the selvedges together to make the centre back seam, and then made four pleats front and back to fit it to the bodice. The fabrics are the same cotton denim from this dress, and a piece of Skinny Laminx for Cloud 9 that I've hung on to since making this tunic for Milla - it's still one of my favourite prints.
There are so many things that I haven't got round to documenting lately; one of them is this In Threes cardigan that I knitted for the same little girl before we went away - I made it in Malabrigo Rios in Ravelry Red, and it has vintage buttons. I haven't been knitting much lately but I love this pattern, it's so enjoyable to make and also ends up being a really useful garment - the ones I've made for Milla have had masses of wear. This one's on Ravelry here.
