Hold Me Closer Tiny Sweater





Ivy in the dress.











Ivy in the sweater
Mommy made for her to go with the dress, including a vintage button from great-grandmother's button jar.

Someone stop me. I can't get enough of her!

  8. I remember pictures of the dress and sweater but they weren't nearly as darling until you put little Ivy in them!

  9. Oh my gosh! That dress and sweater are so cute! You must be having fun having a girl finally. I know I would be. Boy clothes are cute, but they don't hold a candle to all those girl clothes!

  10. She is absolutely adorable! I'm jealous of your knitting skills.

    My husband asked me yesterday why I'm always dressing our daughter up so much (she's a few days older than Ivy and my first girl also - we have 2 boys)... Because she's so stinkin' cute and it's fun!!!

  35. that is sooo cute. i love the dress and the sweater is rockin.
    I love little sweaters.
    I too am having a girl and now i can dress her in little sweaters- but i will have to buy them and not endanger the lives of people in my house by trying something with weapons known as knitting needles.
    I went and checked out the post from may when you bought the dress and I realize I have not bought a dress yet for mine.
    I'll have to do that after christmas and get a pretty one on sale that i think will be appropriate because I KNOW she will be here before easter. (i told her she had to be)

  42. It's beautiful! Where'd you get the pattern from?

    She is such a peach. My mother called me peach fuzz for my hair, but she is edible like a peach! Those cheeks! YUMMY!
