Best Grandaughter Ever
I made the dress for this Yard Goose as part of my Mother's Day Present to my Grandmother. When I was younger she used to own a yard goose and would have my mother sew clothes and costumes for it. Due to an insane landlord she was unable to keep the goose when she moved. Thankfully she is now living in a friendlier establishment she is able to have such (ridiculous) yard adornments. I was able to find the plastic yard geese at a store where I currently live and got the genius idea to buy her a new one and make it dresses as her present.
And she loved it!
I made 2 dresses, one in variegated pink baby yarn as a spring dress and this one from leftover acrylic yarns. In my stash I currently have supplies to make Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day dresses. I used the pattern at the following link as a guide and made up my own. I hope that I can post the pattern and basic steps when I make the next dresses. I am terrible at taking picture oh my WIPs.
