The sleeves aren't exactly the same. One sleeve has 1 more stitch than the other one so one sleeve is slightly smaller so I stretched it (probably stretched the other one too.) Sorry, I haven't finished the whip cream dress yet. I'm also finishing up a blanket. I started working on the rectangle loom (I haven't worked on it much) (you know instead of a round loom it's rectangle) I have other lapgans that I started in January I believe that I was going to have ready to give to the medi center but I might sell them.

    ps. Keep Cool. It got up to 99.5 degrees today. Now it's 82.9 degrees at 8:23 pm. It was cooler in the basement. We have the air conditioning on now.

    I finished the Pixie dress. Well, I finished it the way I wanted to w/the hdc and shells and sc's except for weaving in yarn ends and putting buttons on the back.
    Hi Jean Marie, You are doing what I was doing making 3 or 4 things at the same time. I haven't finished but one dress the other 2 only need the skirts done. I had the grandbabies for 4 days need I say I didn't get anything done. When they took their naps I cleaned the house for another round of play. I loved every minute of it. It is hot and muggy here we have a lot of humidity which makes you feel sluggish. It has rained for 2 weeks straight.

    I hope you post all the lovely dresses you made. I really like the colorful sailor dress that turned out really cute.

    How do you use your rectangle loom? Is it used for crochet and knitting? What do you make on it? I have seen some round ones at the store but I though it was for children to get them started on the craft. Can you do large projects on the loom?

    Hi Spoula,
    Actually on the purple dress it's supposed to be 21 rnds. I did 17 rnds. and it looked long enough - besides I ran out of that color. I decided to leave it and call it done.

    You get a set of 4 different sizes of the round plastic looms. You also get a set of 4 different sizes of rectangle plastic looms. I'm using the largest rectangle loom that was in the set. There are videos on it to tell you how to do it. The rectangle loom has pegs on both sides so it's a double knit. I'm making a lapgan. It's a different feel than crochet. If you make more than 1 lapgan you can piece it together to make a bigger project. I also have a wooden round loom.

    I don't have these but I did see that you can get looms that you can attach on it to make it bigger. They also have a serenity loom. You can google it to see what it looks like.

    ButtonHole Band on the Whip Cream dress
    I turned the dress inside out w/the front of the dress facing me and pulled the neck part of the dress down so I could see the back side so (the bottom of right back Yoke opening) it is the bottom right side so I can work right to left.

    I followed the pattern for the buttonhole band. 11 sc's on each side of the yoke = 22 sc's ( I had to go between the rows on 1 sc to get 11 sc's on both sides) but the next row (row 2) makes 2 buttonholes on one side and 1 button hole on the other side.?

    https://us2.campaign-archive.com/?u=...&id=00982281ad

    I took out 1 row (row 2). Is it supposed to be 22sc's on one side of the yoke?
    I took out the rest of the sc's (row 1).

    With the dress inside out on the back side of the dress maybe it's starting on the bottom of the yoke on the right side. Then if I turn it to the right side facing out the left side of the yoke would be the button holes.


    I did it over w/the 22 sc's on one side of the yoke and did row 2 and then turned it so the right side is facing out and the buttonholes are on the right side. It's hard to tell the right side from the wrong side. If I sew the bottom of the Placket to the inside of the buttonhole band it covers up one of the buttonholes.

    I took it out again. Maybe I'm supposed to start a couple stitches to the right from where I started before so when I sew the bottom of the Placket it'll be sewn on the bottom of the buttonhole band

    so the placket and the buttonhole band are supposed to overlap?

    Hi Jean Marie, I was at the pool since lunch and just got home. Sorry I missed your earlier post.


    #1. That is correct your buttonholes will be on the left.

    #2:
    You should have sc in the first 2 sc then skip 3 sc that would have helped you to not cover up the buttonhole see below row 2
    Row 2:
    Ch 1, turn; sc in first 2 sc, ch 3, (skip next 3 sc, sc in next 4 sc, ch 3) twice, skip next 3 sc, sc in last 3 sc; finish off. You should hve sc in the first 2 sc then skip 3 sc that would have helped you to not cover up the buttonhole.

    The pattern says to start the buttonhole band on Row 1 with the WRONG side facing. (That means when you are at the bottom of the right back Yoke opening the right side will be facing out you will slip st there and chain 1 then make 22 sc evenly spaced across the end of the row working up the right side of the back across the neck and down the left side. At the end of the row you will follow the pattern instructions to work back up the left side to create the chain 3's for the button holes. ( I didn't do my back that way)

    I made my buttonholes on the right side and used the placket for the buttons. I did it that way so that as the child grows you can move the buttons closer to the edge to give more room in the bodice or chest area.

    I think you can finish the back which ever is easier for you that is what I did and you cannot tell the difference between dress number 1 without the placket and dress number 2 with the placket.

    Is this what you were asking? I hope this helps.

    Hi Spoula,
    The Whip Cream dress -To figure out the right side on where to start I turned the dress inside outw/the front of the dress facing me and folded the front part of the dress down and started on the bottom right corner so if I turn it w/the right side facing out the buttons are on the left side. I read your post ( I didn't know they meant going from one side to the other by going around by the neck when doing the buttonhole band) but I already had the 22 sc's on one side w/the buttonholes and was just ready to put the buttons on. I just wanted to let you know why I put the buttons on the side I did.

    It was raining last night so I shut the computer off to be on the safe side but not before reading your post. I tried to reply but couldn't. Then the computer let me post on something and I tried to reply on your post last night but it wouldn't let me.

    Hi Jean Marie,
    I love your dress so colorful and it turned out really pretty. I like how you did the skirt your way with the different colors it is a unique design. The shells around the bottom is also a nice touch. What size did you make.


    I am tired of the sc,ch2,sc too. I put it down for now but will finish it the way the pattern says as I like that stripe look. I'll post it shortly (I hope).
