Sierra in her finally finished halter type top.

Here it is close up. It is made from Lion Brand cotton-ease in orange and wool-ease in hot pink.

Here's the back. I knitted tubes of the wool-ease (which was a huge pain for me to work with) and then made a crochet chain on the body and strung the straps through. I think it turned out pretty well. She likes it, which is all that really matters.

Now that I am done with it I think I am going to make a little pull over sweater for Camden out of the same orange yarn but embellish it with little flowers of wool-ease but in yellow. That way they will sorta match but fit their own styles.

It's adorable (and so is Sierra)!

Did you follow a pattern or design it yourself?

She looks lovely in it! What a great apron design -- perfect for summer, and the colours are unbeatable. :)

I just made the pattern up as I went along. I knew basically what I wanted so I just jumped right in. I didn't decide on exactly how I wanted the straps until this morning when I made them.
