About a month ago a friend and I were chatting about how cute all of the knitted dresses in the stores were. I commented how easy they would be to make and just like that, I cast on this dress for her daughter, Julia. Her Momma picked out this color combo and the dress will be her “untraditional” Holiday attire. How fun!
I made no modifications to this pattern and as with most projects, I learned something new: jogless stripes in the round! I used this tutorial recommended by a fellow Raveler. Based on Julia’s measurements, I knit the 2T size. After blocking, the dress grew, length wise. So if you are wanting a specific length and are using Cascade 220 Superwash, I recommend making the dress about 1.5″ shorter than what you actually want. This was a really easy/fun pattern and I will definitely be making this this dress again!
