This pattern is for a comfy party frock. It's perfect for frolicking in the summer sun, or for Easter with a long sleeved tee underneath. The skirt is easily shaped without any disruptive increases, so that the lines will be clean and flowing. The skirt's a-line is achieved through the use of progressively larger needles, giving a looser gauge as you move down the skirt. The smocking on top is a very simple and easily memorized stitch.
With detailed instructions and an appendix of techniques, this pattern follows the high standards we've set here at LTK. With 5 sizes from 6 months to 4T.
