I was looking for a classic, timeless little dress. Rio has a vintage feel to it, and will become an heirloom piece to be handed down from baby to baby.
Top down construction, with a center seed stitch panel and a full princess skirt.
I have started on upsizing this to an adult top, it is in the works
Photo tutorial for binding off stitches added for clarity##Tips** ## This pattern also works well with sport weight yarn
Be sure to come and share your FO, modifications, and pics over at the Lovers of Taiga Hilliard Designs group!
Rio pattern is available in English and Italian (kindly translated by Barbara Ajroldi)
I have updated the pattern as of 12-5-2012, please download the updated pattern.
