I was looking for a classic, timeless little dress. Rio has a vintage feel to it, and will become an heirloom piece to be handed down from baby to baby.
Top down construction, with a center seed stitch panel and a full princess skirt. Rio is designed with positive ease, so there will be lots of room to grow into a tunic.

My name is Taiga Hilliard and I am a yarn addict. I love designs that have a classic feel to them, but with a twist and am most happy when I get to work with cashmere, or other luxury yarns. When I do not have needles in my hands, I enjoy photography and reading.
I love top-down pieces, with very little finishing, and in the round patterns, which carries over into most of my designs.
