I made 2 versions of this pattern, the original dress length and then a shorter sweater length.
For the sweater I used a printed fabric for the front instead of the colour blocking that was used for the dress.
I also tried 2 different hem treatments for the frills, for the sweater I left the edge raw and for the dress I turned the edge under 1cm and topstitched.
Cotton fleecy knit and cotton ribbing for the neck, sleeve and hem bands.
