old man sweater dress is done :)

I originally was going to put a flower on this to make it more girly but then my friend had the idea of argyle... I thought it was a cute idea but now I'm not sure if this looks too boyish. Oh well, I'm giving it to a friend for her baby girl in July so hopefully she is less critical about it than I am. It was fun to make my first dress though!

Stats: Anouk pattern - closed the sides of the dress, no pockets or side tabs, and my own colors and design.
Size 8 needles (pattern called for size 5 needles and cast on 138 stitches, I used size 8 and cast on 101 stitches)
yarn- Vannas Choice same greens as in cherry pants
dress measures 6.5 inches from bottom to start of arm holes. 4 in from arm holes to begginning of collar.
