Tired of my little one instantly growing out of her clothing, I decided to create something that she would be able to get some long time use out of. This pattern is designed so that it could be worn as a dress, a skirt or a top. The length is adjustable, based on your size needs, and the straps make adjusting the size even easier. It can be worn in the spring and summer alone, or layered over longsleeves and pants/leggings in the cooler months. Written for two different sizes (a third even larger size can be achieved by using a different yarn weight and the large pattern). It is a very versatile pattern that will offer your little girl long term wear. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet half double crochet double crochet hand sew buttons GAUGE For those who tend to crochet more loosely, I recommend using a size smaller hook. (examle: use and H hook for the large size) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Small (3months-18 months) Large (2T-5T) X-Large (5-7 years) SUGGESTED YARN 369 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Expression Fiber Arts COLORWAY Any (though varigated and/or tonals look best)

Coming from a very artistic family, I have been an avid crafter all my life. From drawing and painting to sewing and most recently, crochet, I love all things crafty. My mother was my inspiration for starting my own business (my company name, a tribute to her) and though she is no longer with me, I feel her presence whenever I create. My daughter is my continued inspiration; the reason for everything I create.
