I wanted a romantic little girl dress, something with a hint of nostalgia but not too fussy. Think English garden tea parties! Something you could play croquet in :) The embellished bottom hem adds a bit of lightness to a clean, polished design but the dress is still comfortable and easy to wear. Two lengths are suggested: top or dress.
casting on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round, yarn over, I-cord bind off (explanations provided),working a welt (explanations/link to tutorial provided), working a stitch pattern using elongated stitches (explanations/link to video tutorial provided), binding off.
This garment is knit seamlessly from the top down. The yoke is knit flat to the bottom of the button placket, then cap sleeves are bound off using an I-cord bind off. Front and Back are then worked separately for bust increases, then joined in the round. A welt is worked, and some increases are added, then the rest of the garment is worked in stockinette in the round to the embroidery stitch portion (a top and a dress length are suggested).
