Design Journey: Chickee's Dress

Here's the First Communion Dress at about the half-way point. I plan on putting on a sash or tie, the skirt needs about 12" more. You may be able to tell that the bottom 3" of the skirt in the photo, the fabric has become more open. I'm working on a shrug in the same stitch pattern as the skirt. I think that I'm going to embroider (in white) some lazy daisy type flowers just above the waistband. I haven't decided if I'm going to add a cap sleeve or not.

Here we are in MARCH! National Crochet Month! Time is flying. I didn't get to crochet at all this weekend...not at all! Busy, Busy, Busy. If you are the praying type, our family could use some prayers this week, especially Thursday, as one of our extended family is going to begin chemotherapy on Thursday. If you are the "good vibes" type, we're not picky, we'd appreciate 'good vibes' sent our way too!

I love the dress! Is the pattern going to be available? I want to make a dress for my daughter for her first communion. OK It's 2 years away, but I may as well start looking for that perfect dress.
