Vintage Apron Dress


Here it is! I have finished Baby Plum's little apron dress. I am rather pleased with the finished product!


Here is a detailed view of the pocket. I bought the ladybird buttons at the Knitting & Stitching Show I visited back in January.

The neckline was a bit tricky. But with help and advice from lovely people on Ravelry, I worked it out. The button holes went slightly awry (i.e I followed the pattern exactly) and the button holes had vanished! Anyway, I have stitched the straps together for now and added another couple of ladybird buttons.  I'm thinking of making a little felt ladybird to put in one of the pockets as a little surprise for Baby Plum!
