Big, bold I-cord daisies on a bold, bright background are reminiscent of the flower power craze of the 70s, and make a fun dress or tank top for the summer.

This dress is worked in the round from the bottom up and divided at the armholes, so there are no seams to sew.

Gauge is not critical for the skirt of the dress, but should be maintained when working the bodice of the dress
