Red Dress

For my DD2, I knitted a dress in 2002. She was 5 years old. The pattern is Child’s Sand Dollar by Jade Starmore with some modifications, and I knitted with Baby Ull by Dale of Norway. She wore it every winter all these years since then until this winter. She pulled it out of her winter clothes and said that sleeves were too tight at the cuffs. After all, she’s been growing and sleeves were too short and cuffs were landing on her mid arms. What did I do? Undid the cuffs and knitted the sleeves longer. She wanted them to be very long. So, here she is with her ‘new’ tunic.

The photo below shows the difference in sleeve lengths.


  1. Ooh, what a good Mom you are! I love the tunic, and it's obvious your DD has great taste. Very nice!

  2. looks great - it's a gorgeous dress, so great that it'll have a second life -- the sleeve bit cracked me up! how big she's gotten..

  3. What a beautiful tunic! Yor daughter looks awesome!

    Happy New Year, May!
