Two Of A Kind
What a lovely trip down memory lane this project was for me. How I loved making adorable outfits for my children when they were small. When I looked through my new crochet book this little dress was so adorable I couldn't resist it. It was a challenge for someone who hasn't crocheted much since the early eighties. I started one dress and and worked on it for what must have been over a week. I managed to get it down to where it flares out and there it got difficult. Many rows were tried and many ripped out. Finally I got the bright idea to start the other dress since the tops was just plain double crochet in a circle and I could do that now. In one evening the second dress was even with the first. After that as soon as I figured out a new pattern row, I could do it on both dresses. I was ecstatic when I finished the last row on the bottom. I know someone with twin girls. I hope the dresses will fit! I used different color flowers so mother can tell them apart. (the dresses not the girls) At this point I don't know which dress is which and they are not perfect, but they are finished and they are adorable! I am thinking about another crochet project, but right now I'm happy knitting another pair of socks.
