A simple little T-shirt dress pattern. Sizing is written for my 2 1/2 yr old.
Color Rows are grouped in 7's so you could easily lengthen or shorten by increasing or decreasing that number to keep the stripes equal.
Also if you want it bigger/smaller width wise add/subtract from initial starting chain.
However you will need to take that into account when starting the sleeves.
Also I recommend a seamless join like that of Sarah London
It's a little extra work but mostly eliminates the back seam that can get distracting.
I think that's all...Enjoy the pattern and please link back or share your finished garment
on Ravelry. I would love to see the results...
Finished measurements should be roughly
7 hdc/5 rows=2 inches
Ch 80 join to work in the round.
join and ch2 to end and start a new round
ch2 counts as stitch (important to remember when working sleeves)
