Willow enjoys climbing rocks with her daddy as much as dressing up in pretty frocks. She can do both in this reversible crochet intarsia A-line dress worked in half double crochet. The reversible crochet technique eliminates strands that can get caught in little fingers when putting it on, and if it gets mussed by crumpets or carabiners, it can be flipped right round.
