As you can see, this dress is very similar in styling to the vest I just made from the same book.
The flower was extremely easy to make, not fiddly like some I've tried. It consists of only two rows of stitches: a cast on row and a bind off row. The sample dress in the book is embellished with several flowers, but I went with the theory of less is more.
The next baby gift will also be for a girl. I have a sweet little Debbie Bliss dress in mind, but I'm tempted to knit one of the stuffed animals (scroll down for picture) from Natural Knits instead.
