What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

A not-so-nicely photographed dress.

I whipped up a little crochet dress the other day using a bit of cotton yarn and a remnant of fabric from my scrap basket.

I just had an urge.

I thought crocheting a yoke and incorporating fabric as the skirt of the dress might add a cute, almost-modern flair to an old-fashioned favorite.

I love the colors in the yarn, but worked in this way, the stripes seemed unusual and disorderly to my very symmetrical eye.

Perhaps a border on bottom would have helped? Or maybe a rosette of some sort on the bodice?

I put a button closure on back but then thought maybe the button looks cute as a front? I can't decide which I like better.

I was lazy and didn't change my macro lens so I didn't get a single good shot of the whole dress. Laziness, be gone!

As critical as I was of it (above) it is a super cute dress. I think a pattern on the fabric would also be nice but I had nothing that remotely worked.

I think my next dress will be a crocheted yoke in cotton yarn similar to this and have the skirt of the dress crocheted in a solid, coordinating color. Because it was FUN to do.

Oh-and can I just take a minute to vent??? WHY is it that people never make cute crochet patterns for bigger children? I mean, golly. I am not smart enough to figure out how to make a newborn size pattern fit a 7 year old, or even a three year old but surely I can't be the ONLY ONE who would be interested in that. Am I?
