My friends daughter was diagnosed with Cerebal Palsy in 2011, but she is the happiest little girl I know. He eyes sparkle and her smile can light up a room.

I wanted to create something that was as fun as she is, but that can be worn for more than one season.

The Harlie Tunic Dress can be easily worn as a tunic over jeans or leggings once the dress length has been grown out of. Perfect in summer as is, or winter with a long sleeved tee and leggings, then as a tunic top the next time round, You can create this, knowing that it won’t be grown out of in just a month or 2!

Try creating this with a sock yarn - they are designed to be hard wearing and machine washable… perfect for kids clothing!
