Little Gardener’s Pinafore Dress has a classy look, but the interesting stitch pattern paired with bright color add a little pop to it. I love dresses, skirts, shorts for my baby, garments that are intended to be worn over onesies and tights/leggings. (And it is also important to keep diaper changing simple, yay!) This bright cotton dress has been made for my baby girl. The yarn is thick enough, so it has the luxurious look which aran yarns usually have, meanwhile the cotton is still light enough to wear it all year.
