This pattern is in one of my Debbie Bliss books. I always liked the photos and the idea and thought I'd give it a try. Here's Elisabeth wearing it. She'd been swimming so it seemed a good time to put it on.
It's knitted in seed stitch from a cotton boucle yarn from Knit Picks. It is super soft.
The body was knit in one piece, so it didn't seem like I was getting very far, very fast. Elisabeth wasn't sure she wanted to keep it on long enough for pictures.
But big sister Annie wanted to give it a try. It still fit her but just was shorter.
