My sundress design patterns

 I have been knitting sample dresses for area local yarn stores that are currently selling my patterns.  This pattern is "Audrey's Sundress" originally designed for my grand daughter Audrey.  I expanded it to 3 sizes.  Naturally the store samples are the smallest size, 3 - 9 months.  The pattern is also sized for 9 - 15 months and 15 - 24 months.  Audrey's was the largest size and she has now been wearing it for a year.  She was 16 months old when she first wore her sundress.  Naturally through the winter she wore it with a top as a jumper.

The first photograph is the store sample for Clinch River Yarns in Clinton, Tennessee , it is knit with Plymouth's Dreambaby, which is 50% Microfiber Acrylic and 50% Nylon.

The 2nd photograph is the store sample for The Yarn Patch in Crossville, Tennessee , it is knit with Berroco's Comfort DK, which is 50% Super Fine Nylon and 50% Super Fine Acrylic.

Notice the descriptions are different for the same fiber content.


Last is the store sample for Smoky Mountain Spinnery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee , this one is knit with Cascade's Pima Silk, which is 85% Cotton and 15% Silk.

The last photograph is taken at Smoky Mountain Spinnery.

This pattern is available for purchase at any of these 3 local yarn stores.  Or at Leedra's Ravelry Pattern Store if you are a Ravelry member.  I can also be contacted directly at leedra@heirloomgoods.com for wholesale orders. 

This pattern sells for $5.95 retail.

And you know I had to include Audrey and her bear in their very own "Audrey's Sundress".
