When knitting something for my daughter, my first thought is, "Yeah, but how long will that really fit her?" followed closely by, "When exactly am I going to find the time to hand wash that? "

The answers for this particular top are: "A while," and, "You don't have to."

This little top accommodates a wide range of sizes by adjusting the smocking and shoulder ties.

The top pictured is a size 2 that has been cinched snug (Baby Girl normally wears 12-18 month sized clothing, Grace normally wears 3T sized clothing). When picking a size, you should go up, as larger sizes can be cinched tighter and thus will last longer for your growing girl.
