Pattern: Golden Rose Baby Sundress

This cute sundress was designed for my niece’s birthday last year. It’s very easy to knit, with a deceptively simple lace hem and a seed stitch bodice, and knits up really quickly. The pattern contains 3 sizes: 6mo, 1yr, and 2yr.

(Etsy and craft-fair sellers: This pattern may be used to knit up to 20 dresses for sale. If you wish to sell more than 20 of them, please contact me for licensing terms.)

Materials needed:

  • 414-500 yards of worsted or aran weight yarn. The yarn called for is Lion-Brand Cotton-Ease, which is a cotton-acrylic blend that is soft, nice to work with, and easily found in your local craft store. I used just a little more than 2 skeins.
  • US8/5.0mm needles
  • Two 3/4-inch buttons for shoulders
  • Yarn needle to sew in ends

Gauge:
18 stitches/4 inches in stockinette stitch.

Skills:
Basic knitting; this is a good beginner lace project.

You can purchase this pattern for $4.00 via this link:

The photos of the adorable baby modeling the dress were taken by Peter Backman. The dress she is wearing was knitted by Beth Ingersoll. (The other dress was knitted by me.) Thanks!

    Wendi,
    What an adorable dress and I wanted to say, Thank you, for making it available as well as willing to let knitters to sell some from your pattern. That is sooo generous of you and a rarity.

    Hi everyone; after you pay for the pattern you should get an e-mail from Ravelry with a link to the download page. The subject line will be: Wendi Dunlap Designs : your PDF downloads. The return address will be downloads@ravelry.com. You may want to whitelist that address in your e-mail program in case the software is spamfiltering mail from Ravelry.

    Lesley, I e-mailed you privately.

    I also would like to purchase this adorable pattern. But I only purchase with a money order. I do not use Pay-Pal due to problems in the past. The pattern is really lovely. Please email me privately. Thanks!

    Hi, I just tried to purchase the pattern with my husband’s paypal account twice. The first time I was not logged into Ravelry and thought that may have been the problem, so I logged in and tried again. Both times I got a message saying I successfully paid, but then a Ravelry screen came up (Rubber Trouble) saying there was a problem. I have not received any email regarding the problem or the pattern. My husband’s paypal account has been charged $4 twice. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thanks

    Hi Karen, I just saw the duplicate payment and refunded it through PayPal, and sent you a link to the pattern in your e-mail. Please let me know if there are any further problems. Thanks!

    Hi – I would really love to buy your pattern, but I don’t use Paypal. Is there another way that I could make payment?

    Hello,

    If you have a credit card, you can pay with the credit card on PayPal without having to have any PayPal account at all — it’s just like using any other online shopping cart.

    I don’t really have another way to sell this pattern at the moment; I’m sorry.

    Thanks!
