rainbow dress - big sis version
A big sister version of the popular Rainbow Dress!
The Rainbow Dress is designed to fit with negative ease, that means that the finished size will be smaller than actual chest size.
This element of the design ensures a good fit, yet still allows plenty of room for movement and growth. My daughter has been wearing the same dress for over three years.
To achieve the best fit for this garment choose sizing based on chest size, not age. Size down if between sizes rather than up.
The rainbow dress comes with instructions for the following options to individualise your rainbow dress and create a ton of different variations.
A photo tutorial for creating neat underarm cast offs is also included.
This size range fits from 22 to 28 inch chest.
This equates to roughly a size 3 to a size 10. For a proper fitting garment, choose the size that reflects chest measurement not age. eg. My seven year old daughter's chest circumference is 22" so I knit her that size.
dk/8ply wool based yarn with good memory.
22 stitches and 30 rows in stocking stitch on 4mm needles over 4 inches.
