The Mila Sweetpea Summer Sundress 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 taught myself to knit in 2005 and began designing in 2010. I love thinking up a shape or wacky concept and then figuring out how to make it into a functional, beautiful, three-dimensional object!
