I made this for my great niece who is turning 2 October 30th. I made it from Cottontail Reynolds Kids yarn, 60% cotton 40% microfiber. I love this yarn, it's drape and softness is great, and it holds its shape. I added a crochet thread flower to dress it up.

How did you know how long to make it per the child's height?

I'm always afraid of making something that won't fit.

The dress is really cute!

I love the angel dress and have made quite a few for charity. They are so easy to make and look so adorable on the babies. I have not made one from Paton's Grace, but have made some from the Bamboo and it works up really nice.
