Cassia Dress

Cassia is a lovely dress/tunic pattern from Tikki Knits. This is my second time using a Tikki pattern and I'm very pleased with the clear and easy to follow instructions. This is the 18 months size for my daughter E., who's 18 months old right now.

I used Drops Love You 3, color 08 Plum. This 50% wool and 50% alpaca yarn is really soft and gets even softer after an Eucalan soak. You'll see this yarn more often on this blog because I am in love with it and bought it in 5 different colors. Unfortunately it's a limited edition yarn.

Although I like the pockets on the original version I decided to omit them for this dress and instead added a gathered section to the skirt hem. 


E. likes wearing this dress. The girl is only 18 months old but already knows exactly what she wants. Or better yet, what she doesn't want to wear. This dress is definitely a winner!
