In the nick of time (last Friday) I finished the final stitches on this adorable back to school dress for my daughter’s first day of grade 3.I used a variegated cotton yarn to keep it cool. Can you tell the part where I started a new ball on the dress? (hint it’s where the zigs really zag!). The fun of variegated yarn is that you have no control over how it will work up. I do like the sass it adds to the skirt. More importantly, my daughter loves it and wore it Saturday as well as the first day!
