This adorable dress was designed for my niece Lily. I wanted her to have a dress that she could wear year round. In the summer it can be a sundress, and a jumper paired with a long sleeve shirt and tights in the winter

The dress is worked flat in one piece. The skirt is knitted sideways from left to right with contrasting short row insets. Then stitches are picked up along the waist and the bodice is knitted from the bottom up. Afterwards, the skirt is grafted and the shoulders and side are seamed up. The dress is finished off with a picot edging along the hem, neckline, and armholes.

When choosing which colors to use as CC1 and CC2, realize that while there will be three triangles and stacks of flowers of each color, more of CC2 will show on the front of the dress and the picot trim will be worked in CC1. I used pink as CC1 and purple as CC2.

Gauge
29 st and 39 rows per 4”/10cm
Row gauge is more important for the skirt and st gauge is more important for the bodice. Use different needles for each part if necessary.
