These tea roses are an optional addition to the First Saturday dresses. I’ve been knitting these roses in some form or another for years. My first attempt at them decorated a baby hat, and I’ve made improvements since then.

I wanted to make the roses smaller as they are placed on the hems of the dresses. You can make them larger by using heavier weight yarns.
