Sarabeth Revisited

You may recall that Sarabeth was a slightly altered, stripey version of the Peanut Dresses, which I designed and knit especially for, and named after, B's adorable niece. As I knit this dress I had a feeling these stripes in these colors would look great on this little cutie, and lookie here- I was right!

I'm so glad to see...well, that it fits, first off. You know you can never be sure until you see it on. But it does, it looks great on her! (Phew!) And I love that Sara's mom told me that she already bought a coordinating, long sleeved t-shirt to layer with this, so she can still wear it when it gets colder. (I can't wait to see it over a pair of jeans!)

Who can resist how cute she is...oh and please- don't even get me started on the shoes! A girl after my own heart!

All in all, a successful knit, I'd say! Not bad for my first (well, first and a half) design. Most of all, like many of us I am a complete sucker for seeing gifted knits being worn. Is there any greater satisfaction? YAY for modeled knit gifts!

PS: Thank you so very much for your lovely compliments on Carmelita! I'm so thrilled with that thing. :)

Are you going to publish your pattern for the very cute pds? (Or have I been under a rock and missed it?) The dresses are absolutely adorable!

I would also love to get the pattern for these dresses. Savannah would look so cute in a tunic version.

And hey, missy, when are you gonna start selling the pattern? I'd like one, please. With sugar on top.

I would also love to purchase the pattern! My niece NEEDS one! Or should I say that I NEED to knit one for her because it is just too cute.
