With daisies, ruffles, a ribbon bow and without seams, this knitted ensemble will give you the twirl of your dreams. This 2-piece set is not only super flirty and fun, you can wear it as separates or rock it as one! With the daisy lace top featuring frills on the sleeves, you are guaranteed a good time twirling around in the leaves. The skater skirt features a perfectly matching picot lace hem, that will show everyone around you that your knitting skills are the creme de la creme! Perfect for a festival, the beach, brunch, or anywhere there is sun, a day prancing around in this outfit will be sure to be won.
Both the Top and Skirt are knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up. The ruffles on the Top are added by picking up stitches along each strap and knitting the ruffle back an forth. The ribbon bow is optional – I used a sewing machine to sew the ribbon to my top, though you could also hand sew the ribbon on. The Skirt features a fold over waistband to encase an elastic for perfect fit.
