Back in June I made my good friend Ali this gorgeous little tutu top for her long-awaited second child, a darling girl.
It’s a pattern I first came across on Pinterest, where my friend sawed it when I pinned it. She loved the pattern so much, and in fact wanted the exact same colours for her darling girl. The pattern itself can be bought on Ravelry.
It is a fantastically easy pattern, with some great little details added like the i-cord bind off for the neckline and the tutu skirt, which is all knit in one.
I love that little skirt and the way it really does seem like a little tutu. I guess if it needs to be a bit longer to make it more into a dress that’s also a possibility. But my friend wanted to use it as a top with leggings for her daughter.
I had a sweet mother-of-pearl button with a heart edged onto it in my button box which finished off the little top perfectly. I love that it actually looks very clean and simple, but has these sweet little extras. And my friend’s daughter looks just adorable in it. Apparently she wanted to dance away in it.
