Sundress and Slippers for my Granddaughter

My step-granddaughter’s birthday party was this past weekend. I had several things in progress for her, but none of them were close to completion. So, I went searching online for some quick-knit ideas.

I came up with a couple things, and took everything I would need to make them with me on vacation in the mountains.

First, I made these little slippers, using Lion Wool-ease Thick & Quick.

They only took about 30 minutes to make. :thumbsup:
Here’s the free pattern: http://blog.innerchildcrochet.com/?p=319

Next, I got to work on the bodice for a little sundress. When I finished the bodice, I cut fabric for a skirt, and sewed it on by hand. (I didn’t want to take my sewing machine all the way to the mountains.) :teehee: I was still doing the hem and adding a butterfly patch as we drove to the party on the way back home from the mountains.

It turned out nice! :wink:

You can download the free pattern on Ravelry.


It’s called “The Two Summer Sundress” by Natalie Larson.
Quick and easy. :slight_smile:

Awww! Those turned out so sweet. I just love that little dress. :muah:

Very pretty - the butterfly adds such a cute touch!!

Very pretty! :heart:

Super cute!!!:thumbsup:

The shoes look lovely and if in doubt The Sundress is an amazing pattern to make .
You have done a lovely job on this dress Sandy . I may have to make another one soon:)

I hope you had a great time on vacation :slight_smile:

The sundress is very pretty and the slippers looks very cute and comfy.

they are sooooo pretty!!!

Those are just so CUTE!! I love them!! Great job, Sandy!

Oh my, how cute! Very nice work Sandy! And very nice way to combine fabric and knitting!

Gr888 creativity …its mindblowing …thnks for sharing

That dress is really sweet and feminine.

They turned out great! I LOVE the little sundress!! Too cute!

Thank you all! :hug:

I love that pattern. It is such a quick knit and so easy to make. Plus, cheap- I use Peaches and Cream and buy calico fabric and ribbon at Hobby Lobby for next to nothing. I have already made four of them, and I have 3 friends that are expecting twins. So I guess, if they all have girls, I’ll be making 6 more of them.

Yours looks great! Love the idea of making the slippers to go with them.

Very cute!

Neat job on the sundress. Great slippers. Way to go!

Very cute, love the dress :happydance:
