Fiona Dress and Romper
This pattern is knit seamlessly, from the top down and includes many options for customization as a dress or romper. (The dress is knit in the round, and the romper is in the round for the bodice with the legs knit flat for the button closure.) Aptly named “Fiona” by my daughter Molly, this pattern has a distinctly renaissance feel and will look even cuter on your little princess! This pattern can be made sleeveless or long sleeved, as a dress, short or full legged romper. It is the perfect pattern to customize a girl’s wardrobe for summer or winter or any season in between.
As with all of my patterns, licensing is included with purchase so there are no limitations on items created from this pattern! Happy knitting!
The pattern is written for worsted/light worsted weight wool yarns but suggestions are given to adapt the pattern for other fibers, aran or bulky weight yarn.
This pattern is written with the novice to advanced beginner knitter in mind. The skills required are listed below and full color picture tutorials are included for the items starred. Additionally I am happy to provide extra support for any questions or concerns that may arise.
