Milse (pron. mil-SHAY) is Gaelic for "sweet things" and that is exactly what this little dress and your darling girl are. Milse is worked seamlessly in the round, from the top down, starting with a provisional cast (photo tutorial included in the pattern).

In 7 sizes from 6 months to 10 years you will knit it again and again. Easy to knit and easy to wear it can be dressed up or down, solid colour, different stripes, add an intarsia motif, the options are endless and they all start with this pattern.
