Pattern Description:

This delightful dress is just the thing for your one-of-a-kind little girl. A pleasure to knit, and a comfortable design to wear, this dress is as unique as the little girl who wears it!

Knit completely in the round, leaving only small seams to join at the tops of the shoulders, this project is mostly "tv knitting" (lots of stockinette stitch on the skirt). Once you get to the bodice, you'll be having such a good time with the smocking stitch that you will want to give it your full attention.

This pattern provides written instructions, and directs you to three tutorial videos on the web to help illustrate some instructions that might be a little hard to visualize from written instructions if you've never used the techniques before. My patterns are written with beginners in mind, with all abbreviations explained and very detailed instructions. I am also always available to help customers who have questions, so if you come upon something that you're not sure of, don't hesitate to contact me! You can message me through Ravelry (I'm colie75), or you can contact me through my Facebook business page here:
