Collage of Laces

Introduction

This was one of the first designs I made. So the description probably could be better. First I made the outfit and then wrote what I remembered. Well, not the best way to design if you want to publish. My daughter is usually my inspiration. Almost everything I make I make for her. I hope that you will enjoy rocheting this top as much as i enjoyed designing it. And I hope that your little one will enjoy wearing it as much as my daughter during coming hot summer days.
