Pattern Description:

This cute kid-size top is great for layering. The armholes are generous, so it can be worn as a summer dress, a jumper over a long-sleeved tee, or a tunic-length sleeveless top. It is knit in the round from the A-line skirt to the slip-stitch bodice, which creates a subtle gathering at the empire waist. Simple crochet finishes the edges, including a decorative crocheted hem.
