Pattern Description:

This little summer dress was inspired by my lovely daughter Cadence. She needed a lightweight dress for summer which did not sit against her skin except in the chest area. The combination of a cross-over bodice, feature ribbon and fern lace skirt was the result.

This free version of the pattern is written using my own tight gauge and has instructions only for a 12-24 month size. Larger sizes can be modified by using looser gauge or thicker yarn.

This pattern is intended for personal home use only. Commercial use of this pattern is permitted only through a cottage license (knitting for charity does not require a license).
