Pattern Description:

Tired of my little one instantly growing out of her clothing, I decided to create something that she would be able to get some long time use out of.
This pattern is designed so that it could be worn as a dress, a skirt or a top. The length is adjustable, based on your size needs, and the straps make adjusting the size even easier.
It can be worn in the spring and summer alone, or layered over longsleeves and pants/leggings in the cooler months.
Written for two different sizes (a third even larger size can be achieved by using a different yarn weight and the large pattern). It is a very versatile pattern that will offer your little girl long term wear.


For those who tend to crochet more loosely, I recommend using a size smaller hook. (examle: use and H hook for the large size)

My daughter is my continued inspiration; the reason for ...
