I had a lot of this yarn and I knew I wanted to make something for the niece that would work for the crazy seasons we have here in Texas. This dress / tunic was perfect.

She thought it was pretty awesome that it’s a dress now but when she gets bigger it’ll be a top. I love the look of the smocking.

Of course, I still had a ton of yarn left over so I also made a hat for her. She was super excited when she saw that it matched her dress.

And I still can’t get over the prettiness of the stitches.
