Violet Gown

 
Good evening beautiful people!

Wow talk about drama trying to get this pattern up! The card reader in my PC decided it would be a great time to not read cards! I had to get Mr Mamma to open it up and sort it out for me. Thankfully, so far so good. Fingers crossed we have no further issues. I guess when you use a computer daily it's bound to have some issues eventually, especially after 2 years!

So without further ado, here is the Violet gown! Lovely ripples paired with picots make this dress an absolute stunner. I love that it is soft and delicate but also packs a little more UMPH in the visuals. It's a very quick dress too with easy repetitions. Sized as it it'll fir 26-28 Weeks gestation and is fully open at the back. I hope you love making this one as much as I did!

    1. Ive never tried this one with thicker yarn so I have no idea, but at a guess I'd say closer to 32 weeks gestation.
