Lacy Ruffles


"This easy design is decorated with pretty ruffles around the collar, hem, and sleeves. With a lightweight yarn and frilly cap sleeves, this sweater is perfect for sunny summer weather. It can be worn over a long sleeve shirt for cooler weather too. It's made from the top down, mostly in double crochet, so it works up quickly. The adorable model in the picture is wearing a sample that’s 1 size too big for her."

If you lengthened this is could be a pattern for a dress. If your little one grows tall before growing out it could also be a dress then a shirt to be worn with leggings.

The ruffles really make this adorable toddler top. With the open design to let in lots of breezes, your little bitty girlie will be the cutest one on the playground. And if too long as the designer stated for this item, it certainly can be a little mini dress for baby. Cute

Such a cute little sweater. It looks like it can be worn as a top or a dress. The model is adorable. I love the frilly edging that finishes off this piece. It definitely needs to be made with cotton yarn though if it is going to be used as a summer item. Looks very simple to make.
