The last couple of days have been spent in a cloud of doubt and misgiving. Worrying over this little sundress. Pondering whether to continue. Is silk really an appropriate choice for an infant's sundress? My thinking was that it'll drape nicely and be more comfortable than wool, cotton or acrylic on a hot summer day. I have some misgivings, but not enough to put the brakes on this project. But I will say, I'm not happy with the 5 knots in the first ball of yarn.
Then, the size. Are newborns really this impossibly small? I've measured over and over again. And checked pattern after pattern. Really? 18" chest circumference? Because it looks tiny! Even Gavin said so as I arranged it for a photo. This solution came to me this morning - I'll finish it, then take it to the mall to compare it to prefab infant clothes. Just to see if the size looks appropriate. Let's face it, the dress is nearly done. May as well finish it and see how it all comes out.
