Pattern by Hazel Carter
Gauge: 7 sts in silk or 8 sts in wool = inch
Letty was asked to be in her cousin's wedding and, after meeting the Silk Queen in a dream, Letty asked for a silk dress. It makes an ideal child's dress for parties or weddings.
The finished sizes of this dress can be chosen from 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 years or chest sizes 22, 23.5, 25, 26.5 27 inches (size 4 is shown in the picture).
The dress is worked from the top down and calls for 3 (3, 4, 4, 4) skeins, 50g each (220 yards per skein), of 100% Silk Fingering weight yarn. We have fingering weight yarns here, including slightly smaller skeins of 100% Silk
The smallest size can be made as a baby's Christening gown in our 100% Wool Feather Weight Lace yarn. It takes 1 skein (2oz) for a gown 20 inches long and 2 skeins if you want to make a longer heirloom. The Feather Weight Lace yarn is packaged in 2 oz skeins for $6.00/skein.This pattern is available as a download here: buy now.
