Vintage Crochet Baby Dress

Crochetdress 1

Yes, I was a happy, adorable baby - perhaps the lovingly crocheted baby dress wasn't the main reason, but it certainly didn't hurt.

The dress was passed on to my mother by the original owner, and when I outgrew it the dress was passed on to a newer baby, and so I don't have anything besides these photos to work from. It looks fairly simple - probably started from the yoke in a pattern of chevrons and eyelets with increases built into the chevrons. I think it's quite likely I could find this pattern or one very much like it in a vintage pattern book or pamphlet if I didn't feel like working it out for myself, but I have no need for a baby dress at this time, so it can wait.
