Lydia is the perfect frock for little girls. Soft, pretty and light. Ideal for play or for more formal occasions. The buttoned front makes dressing a breeze and the generous armholes means it can be layered over long or short-sleeved tees or blouses for completely different looks.
The skirt flares just the right amount so they can swirl it gently without being hampered by yards of fabric and the pretty stitch pattern is just the right side of lacy. It is also a little longer and gives a lovely vintage type silhouette as well as extra wearability. Team with sandals and bare legs in the summer or over a polo neck sweater and thick tights in colder months. The fabric is quite stretchy and as little ones tend to grow upwards before they grow outwards, Lydia would also make a lovely tunic over a skirt or trousers thus making it a truly useful piece for their tiny wardrobe.
To make it even more winter friendly and in a bigger size, use size 6.00/7.00mm needles and an Aran/Worsted weight yarn.

Have only just begun my journey into the world of commerce but lots more patterns are in development and I really look forward to sharing them with you soon.
