When we found out we were pregnant, 5 years after our son was born, a big part of me wanted it to be a girl–the part of me that likes to sew and knit! I have so enjoyed having a boy that the non-crafty part of me wanted another one, but while I can do without the frilly pink bedding and dolls, I desperately wanted to knit beautiful sweaters and make fabulous sundresses for my own child. Alas, it’s boy number two for us. So here is a dress for my three year old niece Lucy instead. This one is a pattern from Oliver + S.
