My favorite thing about the nordic winter is that it is the necessary precursor to the spectacular northern spring. Everything that was frozen and dormant now awakes so fresh and juicy, just bursting of life and greenness. The light returns and nature is so full of optimism and newness. I just love spring.

The Nova Dress is a fresh and simple little raglan dress in the vibrant colors of spring. The dress is knit in one piece from the bottom up in gorgeously soft yarn. It has a front flap which buttons with cute little buttons and makes it simple to get in and out of and fun to wear.
