Designing a dress: The Yarn Talker Dress

I've been putting my thinking cap on lately & set my fingers working to try to design a top-down knitted dress for my baby girl.
I searched online for patterns but they all had fancy stitches & fancy patterns to them but I wanted something that would show off the lovely yarn.
So I draw, I knit, I assess, I undo...over & over & over again!
This is now the fourth attempt, I am happy with it so far & am now off to see if I can work the underarms (without too much undo & redo's!)

Or...have I missed something, do you know of an simple, easy top-down knitted baby girl dress?
What do you think of the name, The Yarn Talker Dress? Is it too weird or do you think it sounds nice?

  1. so far, so good.I often use some vintage 30s 40s top down baby sweater patterns as a jumping off point cos they call for fine yarn
