Introducing the Katja Dress.  I am sure you recognize the fabric.  I have had it in my stash for quite some time, but I could not wait for the weather to cool off so I could combine it with this knit.  I chose the black and white stripe, because the black in the dress stands out as a neutral color.  I am always looking for something to match Olivia's shoes.  Does that sound ridiculous?  Seriously, I often ask myself if she has a pair of shoes to match her outfit, otherwise I am not interested.  For example, we went shopping the other day for a pair of red shoes.  I have bought her a pair of red shoes every year, but this year, I have not been able to find anything.  She has a ton of red clothing, so I need matching shoes.  LOL.  Oh well, I still have a few sources to check out.  I am sure I will find something.

Of course my mom made this gorgeous black and white hat, and I could not wait to model it.  Isn't it precious?  She has such talent, and she whips them up in one night.  It takes me a week.  As a child, I always remember my mom knitting or crocheting something, while we watched a movie.  She has been doing it for a long time, and I think that is great.  When the kids were born, I got matching booties, sweaters and hats, and nothing has changed.  No more booties of course, but the hats and scarfs still come.   I still remember the hats she made for us as children, with these big ol' pom-pons on top of the head.  She even made them for my dad, who loved to play ice hockey in the wintertime.  I do love those hats.  It is just part of my childhood and now a part of my business.  So as long as Olivia wants to wear them, she will.

I intend of making some more of these knit dresses.  I just think for the winter months they are warmer.  If you would prefer this as a top, I will gladly make one. Just subtract $7 from the price.

  • I was wondering what pattern you used for this dress…or is it your own pattern? Is there a way I can buy the pattern from you?

  • Hi Angela, this is sort of a mix of patterns I put together. Just find a t-shirt pattern, and add a skirt. All the other details are just added as I go along.
