Snowdrops for Her summer top is designed on request from knitters who liked my Snowdrops Dress for little girls, but wanted to have a similar style garment for themselves.

Check my designer page for the current promotions and discounts in my pattern store. Happy knitting!

Despite the similarity with the design mentioned above, this top has several improvements. The main features is that the top is worked completely top-down allowing you to adjust the bodice length to your liking. The skirt stitch pattern is also different, but still has enough flare to fit with positive ease in the hip area and feel comfortable if worked to above the knee length, meaning that you can easily turn this design into a cute summer dress simply by knitting it longer.

The pattern has charts, schematics and written instructions.
