My christening dress

The pattern for the dress I started the other day was the same one my mum used to make my christening gown:
 


It's a little hard to tell from the picture but that is me wearing the same dress (just made longer than the pattern calls for) as the one I just finished making!

 

 
I used some stash buttons I got last year to finish off the back of the dress and then some matching bootees in the left over yarn.

 
Here's the set together:

 

It's supposed to be a very rainy weekend here so I'm hoping I'm going to have lots of crochet time :) Have a happy weekend everyone!

  1. OOOh pretty as a picture in pastel pink!
    Love the fact that its the same pattern as your Christening gown.I must admit I did enjoy gazing at those vintage patterns in one of your previous posts. I think my mum must have a drawer full of retro crochet and knitting patterns...
    Its great to keep traditions going!
