Millie's 'Abagail Rainbow'....

After knitting the Abagail sweater 3 times and LOVING the lace pattern worked into the design I was itching to try something new with it....
I've been eyeing off this Rainbow dress pattern for some time now but never really went much on how slimming it appeared to be. I like my girls dresses to have a little bit more room in them so that I can pile the spencers on underneath when the weather is chilly....

After a few tweaks here and another couple there I came up with 'Millie's Abagail Rainbow', named in honour of the 2 very clever ladies who inspired me to improvise this pattern...

I'm thinking of making it into a free pattern download on Ravelry for those that might be interested and am just working on the size range now... This one fits my 6 month old as a long top and I'm sure it would of fit her as a dress when she was 3 months old too... So I'm saying that this is the 3-6 month size...

What size should I go up to??? Would there be anyone interested in testing the pattern for me before I release it??? Any feed back would be great... Take Care :)

  1. Its gorgeous Jodie, Sorry I can't commit to test your pattern at this stage too many other things on, I might be up for the next one ... though I don't have any sweet lil girls to make one for as My lil Girl is a 5.

  2. Oh it is so adorable Jodie. If you make it up to size 2 years I would be willing to knit the largest for my god-daughter. I love the pattern too and yours looks fantastic. I will wait to hear from you about test knitting it okay.
