Claudine Layered Top & Dress
Short Description: Claudine Layered Top & Dress by Froggginette. This design is a versatile and timeless pinafore-style top or dress with a classic peter pan collar (optional). Two sleeve options (puffed or three-quarters) are suggested, which help create the illusion of an undershirt:
The garment is knit from the top down with no seams and only minimal finishing. The stitches for the sleeves and collar are picked up on the wrong side of the garment. Button loops are sewn on at the end so any size button can be used for the closure. The garment can be worn with the buttons at the front or at the back (the collar looks the same at the front and at the back.)
