Cute little baby dress, originally knit in a bably blue and white ripple stitch for 12 month old little ones. You can customize the pattern to also fit 18 months and 24 months!
“This charming little dress was designed and knitted for my granddaughter. I called it the “Best Sunday Dress” because it really seems to me just a little too fancy to wear everyday! It is knitted seamlessly from the top down. The top features comfy raglan-style sleeves. I debated between putting the buttons on the front or on the back, and decided to put them on the front for a more traditional look. The skirt is formed with repeats of a lace motif that gives it a wavy texture. It should be easy to adjust to make it longer or shorter. Shorter might be better for a more active infant or toddler!”
