New Cotton-ish Pattern: Pretty In Pink Girl’s Dress!

Pretty In Pink Dress

Some of you may remember me posting WIP shots on Facebook of a dress I knit for my daughter for Easter.  I promised to write up the pattern to share, and although it took a few months it’s finally available for download! The Pretty In Pink dress is knit in one piece from the top down (I’m all about minimal seaming for us busy mamas), so you can try it on your little wiggle worm as you work!

I’d originally planned on knitting just the bodice, then using a printed fabric for the skirt. That plan however, didn’t meet Miss Clover’s “all-pink” demand nor did my suggestion to stripe the knitted skirt with another color. Thankfully though, Cotton-ish shade, “Cotton Candy” met her approval!

Yarn: Bernat Cotton-ish by Vickie Howell
Needles: Size US 5 & 7 (3.75 & 4.5mm) circs & dpns

The result was a sweet, lightweight, easy-to-wear frock that could be worn as-is, or as a tunic with some leggings. I love my little gal in her drape-y dress! Get the pattern here.


P.S. I love seeing pictures of your finished projects. If you make this dress, please tag @vickiehowell on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Thanks!
