A simple summer dress, Delilah is perfect for knitting at the park or beach. A wide border of Old Shale Lace creates a scalloped edge at the bottom and concentric decreases create an A-line dress. The yoke is again worked in the Old Shale Lace for a delicate finish to the perfect summer garment. Intended to be worn through the summer as a dress and into the fall as a tunic this garment will last a few seasons as kids grow up more than out.
