Pattern Description:

Sophisticated enough for Robin Hood's leading lady, yet modern enough for any woman of today, this lovely dress knits up easily and is as comfortable to wear as it is stylish! Put an edgy new twist on the classic cocktail dress by knitting it in a solid color and using beaded yarn for the waistband, or give it a nautical flair by choosing navy and white! Any way you style it, you're sure to end up with a dress that will turn heads wherever you go.

Construction: Skirt is knit in the round from the bottom up, then the top is knit separately in two pieces on the bias and seamed together.
