FO: Violet

A sweet (and free) little dress, Violet, by Shelbyknits.

It's knitted top-down, with a flouncy skirt made from frequent increases. By the time you start noticing the increases and the huge number of stitches, the dress is nearly finished, and so cute, that you have to finish it.

The yarn is Cascade Ultra Pima in a ridiculous bubble gum pink. It's 100% cotton, super soft, machine washable, and buy-one-get-one-free from a trip to Garden District Needle Shop, in New Orleans. Score!
