I live on a tropical island called Penang which is one of the states in a country called Malaysia, but it does not stop me from learning how to knit. I knew how to crochet since I was 6 and taught myself to knit about 5 years ago and after a couple of projects, I began designing my own patterns. I just love the process of designing, from the imagining of the design to the drawing and even the math part of it. I love to wear something pretty and feminine and it is reflected in all of my designs. I have 2 small daughters that need a lot of attention besides my full time job, so I am happy enough if I can publish 3 patterns a year.View all patterns by designer (38) »
I made this dress for Lauri. It's very simple and easy to make. To make it special, I put slightly ruffles sleeves and ruffles dress and also two pockets to put in some sweets. It's a perfect dress to play.
I also include in the pattern tutorial to make picot bind off, to attach the pocket, and to make button loops using tapestry needle (if you don't know how to crochet).
