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!
