Dear Tiny Dress

Dear Tiny Dress,

If there were laws against being darling, you would be in the slammer for life.  You’re killing me with your cuteness. You’re so cute you make kittens jealous.  You make puppies cry at night, overwhelmed with thier wish that they were you.  You make baby bunnies sleeping in a basket of pansies look homely.  You make lambs frolicking amongst fields of forget-me-nots seem crass. 


Love Forever,

Stephanie

(PS. I really mean it when I say I love you.  I know I said the cute thing about those bootees, but you’re different than the other projects.  You’re way cuter.)

  1. So cute. You remind me of my husband who told each of our 4 children that they were his favorite. When they reminded him that he said that to all of them, he would say, in a whisper, to the one he was talking to at that time, “yeah, but with you, I mean it.”

  2. Awwww…when is Marlowe’s birthday? And when do we get to see her wearing the cute dress?
    Because we will have to forego sugar on that day!

  3. Sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet, swee……….

  4. This is like the “You could be a redneck if…” thing. I have one: You’re so cute that you make the lion cub want to bite you out of jealousy.

  5. What a tease! Just this small sample of cuteness and not the whole dress. My imagination tells me Marlowe in the dress will be baby gorgeousness.

  6. It’s one of the things I most love about you … you are A BIG TEASE! You know how badly we want to see this wee perfect dress !

  7. I’m typically a patient woman. I’ve never been one to skip to the end of the movie. I love surprises and don’t want to know in advance about them. But I’ll be darned, when you first started this dress I wanted to see the finished photo right away! This is one of the rare times in my life I want a fast forward button.

  8. The dress surpassed cute so long ago that I don’t even know how to describe how utterly delightful it is.
    I can’t wait to see Marlowe in it. She’ll make it even more beautiful.

  9. Please post of birthday photo of the baby in that dress (before she eats cake). I can’t wait to see it modeled.

  10. The little dress looks darling. The colors and the yarn are gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing the entire dress. She is one lucky little girl to have someone like you knitting for her!

  11. You make baby bunnies sleeping in a basket of pansies look homely.
    REALLY!!! BUNNIES! This must be some dress! Gotta see it to believe that bunnies….???

  12. The cutest and yet most elegant knitted item you have ever created ! The birthday girl won’t appreciate it’s beauty yet(until she bestows it to her own daughter) but her mother will swoon at it’s ability to make her new daughter look like a real princess.

  13. Why do I get the idea you’re already plotting how to adapt this to a Stephanie-sized top? (Which, BTW, might look stunning with a black silk crepe skirt or slacks. . .or a floor-length black velvet skirt. . .or even pin-striped gray flannel. . .or. . .!)

  14. And just imagine how much cuter it will be once the little one puts it on! Kinda gives you a lump in your throat, doesn’t it.

  15. Such a lucky little girl to have an Auntie Steph in her life. Almost makes me want to knit one of those adorable things. Sadly, won’t look nearly as cute on my 11, 13, 22, and 26 year old nieces. 🙂

  16. Sooooo sweet. My favorite thing to just create and knit is children and baby clothes. So. Dern. Darling. Wonderful blooms and leaves and picot 🙂

  17. Oh, my. Cute doesn’t stand a chance against this dress. This charming little dress has left cute in its dust. Thirty miles back. With a flat tire.
    The leaves are inspired (I love that you nailed the colour perfectly the first time), and once again you have blown me away by creating the perfect gift. This is truly a labour of love.
    Utter gorgeosity (it’s a word in my world…)

  18. Yer killin’ me! Between the utterly perfect green on the first dye, the glimpses of the completely enchanted and enchanting little dress, and the charming “cuteness” examples in this post – I’m destroyed. You are my idol.

  19. Cute. Truly adorable and a masterpiece.
    However, if I were the recipient of this dress, I did not dare put my daughter in it. Not because it would not be really really cute and adorable on her, but because I would fear that she would spit up on it, smear birthday cake all over it, dunk the ends in cocoa, etc. It would simply be too precious to be worn.
    (I am sorry, I am all for practical. But I do love cute dresses – for dolls).

  20. After all of that, there had better be a full length photo of this paragon of cuteness, after you’ve gifted it of course 😉

  21. SQUEEEEE!
    (That’s the delighted, high-pitched noise that one makes when seeing something way too adorable!)

  22. What a very very cute dress. Can’t wait to see Marlowe in it. I don’t agree with Connie. My girls always had cute dresses, just as practical as jeans. I can’t wait till I am a grandmother and make cute dresses and suits for my grandchildren. Knitting red socks now for “Dress in Red day” on september 29th. Do you have that too?

  23. I just have to say I love your description. It sounds like a cuteness overdose. I’ve had those.

  24. I am smitten by the tiny peek of tiny roses with tiny leaves. I can hardly wait to see it in its cute entirety on Little Miss M. Any chance you’re thinking of turning this into a pattern?

  25. And the little green leaves peeking out from behind the little pink roses are E.X.A.C.T.L.Y. P.E.R.F.E.C.T!
