Here is a fun summer dress I made for my daughter. The neck is made in a similar manner to my Puff Stitch Choker pattern, and the top is textured nicely with a combination of puff stitches and single crochet. The skirt is light and lacy and fun to twirl in! It can be worn over stretch pants or shorts, and it can be worn over a shirt as well for added warmth. There is also a video linked to help with the puff stitch neck.
