sweetdreams

Alhamdulillah… I am very happy that finally I got a chance to write down this pattern. I’ve been pushing myself to knit this one for my daughter. I called it a sweet dreams gown cause I am planning to make she wears this at night as a night gown. Do you see the flower ribbon I attached on the garter stitch band? Hehe… honestly the flower i done it with photoshop. After knitting this for 5 days straight, honestly I don’t have any energy left to knit a flower or a ribbon. So, this “naughty” idea just pop into my mind. Well well… hopefully it doesn’t ruin the look of this dress πŸ˜€ Alright. Let’s start knitting one!
