Rainbow Chip is a little girl’s pinafore in five sizes (12mo, 18mo, 24mo, 4y, 6y). This sweet little dress was inspired by Knit Now Magazine's birthday-themed issue. Rainbow Chip is my favourite birthday cake - a white cake with rainbow sprinkles throughout. I imagined how special the birthday girl would feel in a birthday dress handmade just for her, in a rainbow speckled yarn. If the birthday girl catches you working on this piece, let her pick out her own buttons for an extra special finishing touch. The standout detail of this dress is a cutout heart on the back of the bodice.
