Pattern Description:

Candy Girl is the first pattern in the Sweetheart Series all inspired by the classic style and oldies music. This one is based off the song "Sugar, Sugar" by The Archies. And totally named after my little candy girl, Addyson, who just happens to love all things sugar! This pattern was designed with 2 inches of negative ease for the sweetheart bodice and utilizes lots of colorful stripes! The lace hem makes for the perfect detail on the twirly skirt.

Pattern Features:
~A whole page of custom tips to inspire you to create the perfectly customized dress for your little candy girl.
~Written instructions for the dress as well as an optional matching headband, including details on all the color changes.
~No slip, no sag straps!
~Simple lace detail for the hem

I am an avid knitter and started knitting when I was 12 but didn't become a daily knitter/yarn snob until about 4 years ago. I post most of my projects on Ravelry, including my notes and tons of pictures. Same user name there if you want to look me up and friend me :)
