Baileys Summertime Top

I made this top because I just loved the knitted version from the lion brand website but alas I am such a slow knitter I wanted my daughter to have her top before winter lol.

So I looked at the schema and did some calculating and 2 nights later vola I finished.  My daughter just loves it and wore it to school today.

I made the bodice in lion brand cotton-ease and did a simple sc fl, sc bl design.

The skirt is made in bernat cotton stripes and did a 2 row HDC (for easy inc) and 4 rows V-stitch.  This worked up very very quick once I had my measurements right.  This is designed to fit a 5 year old or a 4T.  The chest measures 21 inches around and the length is 13 1/2 inches from shoulder to bottom of skirt.
