It is so good to be a year old. To be able to look this cute and not even realize it.
To be able to find happiness in a ball and squeel with delight and to be SO adoreable doing it!
I made this dress for a dear friend who helped me tremendously before my wedding. I never got to photograph it with a model until today when we went out for a little photoshoot with her cutie daughter, Leyla. She, dear friends, is a natural. She was so calm and really knew how to work the camera.
Pattern: Little Liza Jane (Ravelry Link)
Yarn: Rowan Calmer, 3 balls
Needles: US 8
As for the dress, I used a heavier weight for this pattern but I think we can all agree that Calmer is like the absolute go-to yarn! It's got such great give and it's so soft. It's really the perfect toddler yarn.
Leyla enjoyed playing in the park and I enjoyed hanging out with her and her wonderful parents.
Leyla, you sure do know how to work it girl. ;-)
