This dress can be made with measurements for baby to young child (like 6 years old or so)!

This project will work for babies through young child (like I'd say even 6 or maybe 7 years old...you'll just have to measure the length of the skirt and make sure you can get that in the circle skirt)! This dress involves a circle skirt and an elastic gathered bodice (somewhat like smocking). You just need some measurements to start. There may or may not be a lot of math to start with...it's good for you, right?!

Twin needles are commonly used for decorative stitching and also hemming knits. Twin needles have two numbers in their sizing. The first number indicates the space between the needles. The second number is the size of the needle. So add some spark to your next straight stitch project, use a twin needle or be adventurous and try a triple!
