A cute dress for the lovely girls, or a vest for the handsome boys! Worked top down from the shoulder straps, with a patterned front worked sideways.
For the intermediate crocheter, or the adventurous beginner!
Changes made to the pattern since it was tested: Shorter and slimmer shoulder straps. Extra sts added at the armhole.
