PATTERN DETAILS

Great gift idea! Knitted in the round from the bottom up this sleeveless baby dress has a very cute and urban look. Two colors are used for the border that combines a Seed Stitch, ruching, and a simple two-color Fair Isle pattern that helps the transition to the main color of the dress. Change in stitch pattern together with some decreases in the skirt part helps to shape the silhouette. The adornment of the neckline repeats the bottom border with a little ruffle at the edge. With the baby's comfort in mind all yarns used for this pattern are very soft and there are only two carefully executed seams at the shoulders. Your baby will love wearing this little dress. So, take a lot of pictures.
