Dress to fit child 1- 6 years. Worked from the hem.
Intermediate. Three sizes. This little girl’s dress won first place in the Design Competition at the 1987 TKGA National Convention and was featured on the cover of Cast-on Magazine.
The skirt is knitted circularly up to the armholes, the shirred bodice is knitted flat, and the puffed sleeves are picked up and knitted down. It occurs to me now that ganseys are knitted the same way and I carried that construction method over into this dress without even thinking about it! The picot hem and I-cord cast-off at the cuffs and neck add to the daintiness of this garment.
