Infinitely customizable, this set can be dressy enough for a party or rugged enough for school. Made in dk or worsted weight wool at a gauge of 5 stitches to the inch, the skirt has a casing for an elastic waist, and can have suspenders or not. Worked from the top down so that the length can be just right for any child. Directions are included for the fair isle embellishments, but the set looks great in plain stockinette also.
