The Sakura Dress is named after the soft, beautiful blooms of Japanese cherry blossom trees: one of our favorite signs of springtime. This dress would look adorable over leggings with some flats - a perfect spring dress for a little one in your life.

Sakura is a raglan worked seamlessly from the bottom up, beginning with the skirt and decreasing at the bodice. Sleeve stitches are cast-on at the underarm. Simple stockinette stitch creates a gently rolled edge along the sleeves and neckline.
You may wish to place stitch markers between pattern repeats during the Skirt section to help keep track of repeats.
