Finished Object: Miss A's Autumn/Winter Frock

As soon as Hannah Fettig released her book Mabel's Closet thru Quince and Co. I knew I had to buy it and I knew exactly what I would make first.

The Autumn Frock is a simple top down dress knit in worsted weight and from what I can tell is wearable for many months. Miss A is getting the 18-24 month and I think it'll last long beyond 24 months as a tunic style sweater. Miss A is the youngest of my older brothers kids and the only girl in the whole lot. When we were all together at Christmas in Arizona Miss A, Mom, E and I went to the yarn shop where Miss A picked out the color she wanted for her dress. BTW's Jessica Knits in Scottsdale Az is a wonderful yarn shop... Seriously if you are in the area you must go, it's on McDowell Mountain Road.

We went with Cascade 220 superwash. In a really pretty pink/coral color. It's incredibly soft and gave the dress a really nice drape. Plus it's superwash, which for a little girl who is 14 months old and a mom who is busy with work, and two very busy boys, superwash is a nice little bonus for her as well... I can't wait to see her in it!
