Hand Crochet Pineapple Dress in Red for Christmas/Valentine's Day
Up in the North Pole, while Santa and his elves make toys, Mrs Claus dreamed up this unique dress from a vintage pattern from Annie's Attic for baby girls 3-6 months. Created from Aunt Lydia's(Coat's & Clark), Classic #10 ,100%Mercerized cotton crochet thread in Victory Red! The skirt of this dress has shell stitches and Pineapple motifs all around. The bodice front is adorned with a stylish flower accent from Berwiick Offray. The back of the bodice has three sparkly flat buttons from the Blumenthal Lansing Company and a snap to secure the neck. The creator's label is then sewn into the back of the bodice by hand. Then ribbon is fed through the eyelet at the sleeves and inner bodice and around the front to back of the dress. Santa and Cupid will be sure to spot the sweetheart in this little Red dress.
Care Instructions: Remove ribbons and flower. Machine wash gentle cycle, warm water, no bleach, rise well and promptly remove. Roll in towel. Block.http://www.etsy.com/listing/87913566/hand-crocheted-pineapple-dress-3-6?ref=v1_other_2
