Pattern Description:

Lollipops and Raindrops Dress is part of the Sun and Sand collection that takes you on a journey to childhood places, carefree days, fragrant summers, best friends, sweet treats, and never ending wonders.

The dress is completely seamless and is worked from the top down.

My favorite part about this design is that it allows you to stash bust your leftover yarns, it is also great for showcasing your prized variegated skeins you have been hoarding for a long time. The dress is equally amazing in gradient or self-striping yarns.

I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows shoulder shaping and body construction without the use of a single short row.

Note on yarn: the pattern is equally suitable for wool and cotton yarns or their blends.
