Pattern Description:

I have a bunch of Madelinetosh Merino light yarn mini skeins and I love stripe projects. So the Elyssa dress was born. A simple, classic design, so all you have to do is add your imagination. Suggestions to try: All solid, random stripes,
2 color stripes, anything you can think of. Elyssa is a top down design, with a full skirt, and cap sleeves, which can be lengthen. The button band looks good either worn in the front or back. In the dress pictured, I did not use more than 20 yards in any of the stripes.
