Summerlin combines both knitting and sewing to create a cute and simple summer garment. The bodice is knit and works up very quickly. The skirt uses simple sewing techniques and is much faster to make than if it were knitted. It's also a great way to add fun colors and patterns to your knitting without having to use complex knitting skills! I've added three different fabric bottoms to the pattern that you can create—two gathered skirt versions, as well as a super-simple apron top for novice sewers.
I hope you have fun choosing fun yarn and fabric combinations, and enjoy creating cute outfits for your favorite little princess as much as I have for mine!
