:: The $1.97 Dress ::

It doesn't seem like $2.00 can go very far these days, everything is so expensive, I remember back when my husband and I were starting our family, we did $45.00 worth of groceries every week. That included diapers and formula.
These days, we go to the store to pick up a "few things" and the total is never ever less than $80.00.

But last week I found this lonely little skein of baby yarn at Joann's for $1.97.

I thought there wasn't much I could do with it, but it's amazing how far 6ozs of baby yarn can go.

Ireland will have a new outfit to wear on the 4th of July. Paired with a big red bow for her hair and some red sandals ( the ribbon is navy blue) she will be ready for some major celebrating.

I made this same dress for her in a 3 to 6 month size when she was just an infant. It is a pattern from the July/August 2008 issue of Crochet Today.
This dress is made in 24 month size. Even though Ireland is 2.5 years old she is very petit and still fits into some 18 to 24 month clothing.

Can you imagine something so cute for only two bucks!!! And a bit of Mimilove of course. :0)


  1. Wow! That's great and the dress is so sweet! I bet she will be adorable! I made this dress for my little Anna. I did different colors on the bottom. This all white version is really cute. :)

    1. Hi Sarah!!!
      Thank you so much, I love the idea of multi colors. This was such an easy one to make that I think I will give it a try in colors for the fall. :)

  2. Wow, that was a great find! And the yarn was perfect for this dress. It's so adorable!

    1. Thanks Olga!!!
