As knitters we know how fast our little ones outgrow the things we make for them. Therefore I wanted to design something they can wear for a long time. Since small children grow more in length than in chest circumference, the little dress just transforms into a tunic style top as they get older. It’s worked top down with a round yoke and is seamless. The little extra neck opening makes it easy to pull the dress over the head.
