Pattern Description:

Inspired by my love of Japanese culture and ballet-styled cardigans, this sweet little tunic/dress is a deceivingly simple knit.

A seamless garment, knit in the round from the top down. Lengths are included for either a tunic or dress.

This is a beautiful and simple dress for babies, toddlers and all age girls!
