This is a pretty little dress I purchased for a song as part of a baby gift. Sweet little Lucy is due to arrive in this world in September. We are very excited for her arrival.
I love the smocking on this little dress and I am always somehow reassured that the world is right when I find these timeless styles still available. It seems that the time allowed for little girl dressing is shrinking with each generation. They want to grow up so fast and clothing manufacturers seem to be helping this idea along. I love this sweet turquoise and dark chocolate combination. Of course, polka-dots make it so much more likable.
I love making baby gifts and right now both the knitting basket and the crochet basket hold works in process for Lucy. Here is the little turquoise sweater I am hooking to match the dress. The pattern calls for a pretty ribbon closure which is woven through one row of the yoke and tied. I need your help in making a good choice.
The first option is a white satin ribbon with turquoise and brown flowers. The pattern calls for grosgrain, but I had few choices.
The second option is a deep brown with white polka-dot grosgrain.
Please leave me a comment stating which ribbon you think I should choose.
