A look at what I'm in the process of creating, who it's for and when, where, and how.

Bishops Collar For 2 Y/O
Last spring I knitted a little lavender sweater and hat for LK. She looked so cute in it that I thought I'd quickly make her a little dress to wear with it. Well, ...... it is about 8 months later and I finished the dress. It has just a small amount of lavender and purple to be brought out by the purple sweater and I learned how to make a different type of hand-stitched flower to adorn the neckline. They are made by using the same type of loop that I make when "casting on" a needle for a knitting project.
This type of neckline is called "Bishop" and is gathered around the back, to the sleeve head, front, other sleeve, then last half of back. I smocked this in various stitches then made 4 colors of flowers in the center of the neckline. The final touch is tiny little buttons for the center of the flowers and elsewhere.
I put larger buttons all the way down the back to match the smaller ones.
