Bella is the model and inspiration for this pretty frock. She is pictured in the purple at 1 month (wearing the 0-3mo size) and in the blue at a frisky 6 months (wearing the 6-9mo size). With a full skirt and a kicky ruffle, it is a combination of beautiful stitches from Barbara Walker and is shaped by both increases and needle size changes. The ties
allow it to be made on the big side and to grow with your little one.
*LOOK for a kit for this pattern with yarn in a Chic-a project bag at Anacapa Fine Yarns.*
