This versatile sparkling dress is darling on any little girl, and as she gets bigger, the straps can be adjusted so she can wear it as a top (as shown)!

Child's Glamour Dress

Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

20 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter st (k every row).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Child's Glamour Dress Reviewed by patricia bowden on 2009-09-17 *****
just had to send you this photo of my grand daughter in one of your free patterns for a dress. The knitting and making up of the garment was extremely easy and the result was fantastic.
I knitted a longer version of it so that she could wear it as a full length sun-dress.
