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
Rio pattern is available in English and Italian (kindly translated by Barbara Ajroldi)
