Knitting Mama: Lil' Nic Dress

In addition to handknitting, my Knitting Mama was a whizz at the knitting machine.

Here's the Lil' Nic Dress, made for me when I was about 3 years old. There's a yellow I cord belt that goes with it too, but it didn't make it into the photos.

I clearly remember loving the way the skirt pooffed out and especially loving the little buttons. And it's still cute.

Isn't it just darling, Darling?

It's gorgeous!

It is darling. I would love to see a pic of you in it back in the day.

Hoot! I'd love to see me in it too, but while I remember wearing it very clearly, I don't think a photo exits.

I've been trying to pursuade Little Mouse to model it for me but as yet to no avail. If I manage to get pics I'll show them off, deffo.

What a gorgeous dress, I bet you looked lovely in it. I love older knitted items, especially ones with good memories, like yours.

Awh! My heart just melted!

Lovely Nic, I also can't believe you still have it but it really looks great. What a photographer you are as well as a knitter.
