Hi, my friends! I wanted to pop in quickly and show you what I’ve been working on. I have been knitting…
I am working on a pattern expansion for Amelia Thimble’s sweater dress pattern here. This will not be a full pattern (you will need the original to complete the dress); the expansion will contain additional instructions to make a longer, fuller skirt with a ruffle at the hemline. I’ve seen independent sewing pattern companies offer expansion packs with their sewing patterns and I think it’s a great idea. It will be one to two weeks before this pattern expansion is ready. I still need to write out the mini pattern and then test it.
Here is a photo from the first sweater dress I made using this idea. These skirts are actually how I first started knitting sweater dresses for Amelia Thimble back in 2012. I made a few changes for this 2019 version. Here is Amelia Thimble doing a little fall clean up. She is such a helpful little doll, isn’t she? 😉 BTW, Amelia Thimble’s pumpkin hat was made using Amelia Thimble’s Hat Set pattern.
I’ve been knitting a sweater dress for the Little Darlings. I was inspired by this striped sweater and reworked my Little Darling sweater dress pattern to include some colorful stripes. I also changed the garter edgings to ribbed edgings.
So, that’s what I’ve been doing over the past few days. What have you been working on?
