Pattern Description:

Pattern features:
-Detailed instructions in PDF format, written in English.
-Knitting charts included for visual knitters (or if English is not a first language).
-Adjustments for left handed knitting.
-Photo tutorial for special assembly details and adding flounce.

-Button loop back closure (snap closure for smaller dress).
