Lil Cutesies Bathing Suit

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I started making Petite Designs Lil Cutesies Baby Doll dress pattern following the directions as written. For those of you interested you can purchase the pattern here, When I got to adding the skirt I wasn't happy with the method for adding the skirt. I found the first round of the skirt alternated up and down a portion of a stitch as I tried to work the pattern as written. I wasn't happy with the look. If you read yesterday's post you can see my notes on how I resovled the situation here..

This left me with a decision on what to do with my first effort. Sometimes I just toss the first effort as there really isn't enough yarn to frog it to reuse the yarn. However, when possible I try to recycle and reuse an item if possible. Looking at this on the doll it just seemed like it would make a cute swim suit. I added a beach blanket and the set was ready for the doll donation.
