Smocked Baby Dress

All my friends are having babies, it's a marvelous excuse to flex my knitting muscles. I haven't actually knitted very many things before. In fact, prior to this dress I knit: a washcloth, a hat, a baby vest, and a pillow. That's it, my friends. So here I present the smocked baby dress.

The sleeves look all weirdly bunchy, I think it'll be fine once it's on a baby. The pattern is Modell 6 from Filati Kids Special 10. The yarn is Patons Beehive Baby Sport in a cute self-striping color scheme. I love how it worked up on the body, not so much how it made big plain bands on the sleeves. I went down two needles sizes.

Ha ha It looks downright goofy from the back. Maybe my friend will post pics of her baby in it, then I can put them up here.

This little dress looks fantastic... and so complicated! I struggle finishing a plain scarf so I cannot image how on earth you knitted this... Well done!
