The finished garment is very practical by itself or layered. This is a perfect project for a knitter with some experience in knitting sweaters. If you know how to knit and purl, and pick-up and cast-off stitches, you will succeed re-creating April-April for your special little girl. The length of the skirt is dependent on your preference. You can decide if you want the skirt to end above the knee, halfway down the knee, or below the knee. You can also choose between the yellow/blue, or the pink/blue dress color combination.
