Others have already posted their amazing "Summer Swing Top" creations so I thought I'd add mine to the list. I've always loved Sailor dresses for little girls so I chose navy and white for the colors and ran with it.

I also added more length to the white ("skirt") portion of the pattern to give more "growing in" room for the baby. I made this for my cousin's little girl who just celebrated her first birthday. I'm quite thrilled with how cute it came out and my cousin loves it so I'm happy.  Grin



PATTERN: Available at http://www.freepatterns.com under the "Knitting" and "Children's" section.

You have to register but it's free and definitely worth signing up for. Great selection of patterns at that site.

She is going to look so spiffy in the dress her aunt knit for her!

Will there be a little beret to go along with it?

Happy knitting,
Janey
