The Tess pattern can be either a shirt or a dress. Or you can have your little girl wear it as a dress until she grows and then it can be a shirt! I use the same shirt/dresses for my 2 and 7 year old daughters.
Using bright colors makes these cute and fun. Or you can use muted colors and have a more heritage look. You can also change the look of this shirt/dress by adding ribbon, or attaching flowers and buttons.
The pattern is written so that you can make it in a custom size, ensuring it fit your little girl.
I have been creating crochet patterns for about 9 years. In the beginning my patterns were pretty scary, but I think all the years of practice (and forcing my kids to wear my creations) has paid off! Hopefully you think so too.
