Knot dresses are a fun addition to any girls wardrobe! If you own a boutique or Etsy shop, the knot dress is sure to be a favorite! In this tutorial, I give you step by step instructions with many color photos. All pattern pieces are included and can be printed from your home computer on regular 8 1/2"x11" paper and pieced together. I also include a measurements chart for those or you who are comfortable using a rotary cutter and mat to cut out your fabric, the only thing you would need is the provided "quick pattern" to cut out the armholes!

***Finished bodice circumference measurements are given for each size to help you customize the fit for your child.

***It is easier to step in or out of a knot dress when putting it on or removing it, versus slipping it over your head and shoulders.
