Meadow Sweet Baby Dress in 2 colours

Although I wrote this pattern over a year ago, I am still enjoying knitting these little dresses.
They really are so sweet !

I recently added premature baby sizes in addition to the original 3months size.

When I made this one in 2 colours I had to play around with the pattern a little to make the lower hem edge look right.

So I thought I would share it with you all.
