Maddie Children’s Dress Knitting Kit
The Maddie Children’s Dress is proving to be the favourite of our new ‘Mini Me’ collection.
Maddie makes a stunning dress for a little girl with the pretty leaf detailing on its flared skirt (which is excellent for twirling)! The same leaf motif is incorporated on the sleeve and back which adds a subtle theme to an exceptional garment.
Knitted on a selection of needles, we recommend you use a set of interchangeable needles for this dress to make the transitions as easy as possible.
