Pattern Description:

The Mila Sweetpea Dress was inspired by my little one, Mila, whom I call "Sweetpea." It is a great dress for the spring or summer and is adorable in almost any variation of yarn. The dress is worked from the bottom up and includes scalloped edging, eyelet diamonds, a flouncy full skirt, empire waist, belt loops, and a ruffled neckline.

I am now designing under the name 80skeins (formerly TheYarrrnPirate). Look for new designs and amazing adventures, coming soon!
