Double crochet stitches gathered at the bust make up the bodice of this strappy halter, with contrasting popcorn stitches to emphasize the empire waist. Joined lace square motifs cascade downward into a trapezium skirt, its asymmetrical hemline enhanced with a light shell edging for a lovely drape. The tasseled belt is threaded into the waist for a wonderful gypsy effect. This lovely piece is available in sizes 2-4 (6-8, 10-12) years, and is made with fingering (sport, dk) weight yarn. Instructions are the same for all sizes: the different yarn weights and corresponding gauges are essential in altering the size.

IMAGINE THIS: The dress can be worn as a poncho when the shoulder straps are omitted. The dress can also be made with or without an underskirt, and worn with contrasting top, or as a beach cover.

2-4 (6-8, 10-12) years
