PATTERN DETAILS

The Mila Sweetpea Dress was inspired by my little one, Mila, whom I call "Sweetpea." It is a great dress for the spring or summer and is adorable in almost any variation of yarn. The dress is worked from the bottom up and includes scalloped edging, eyelet diamonds, a flouncy full skirt, empire waist, belt loops, and a ruffled neckline.

Kimberly found her love of design while knitting plastic bags into shoes and fishing nets for her Master’s thesis (for resource poor areas of the world with lots of errant polyethylene - not just for funsies). She found that working with yarn was sooo much nicer and the possibilities to make beautiful things were endless. Kimberly is now a full-time designer and an aspiring knitting travel writer - it may not be a profession yet, but give her time!
