A gorgeous lace dress pattern with the instructions to knit the cap sleeved, short sleeved, 3/4 length sleeved and long sleeved versions. It also includes the instructions to knit two different necklines - the cap sleeved dress is pictured with the higher neckline and the 3/4 length sleeved dress is pictured with the wider neckline option. This pattern is great value, a timeless classic which you can turn to year after year for all seasons - knit up a cap sleeved knee-length skirt version in a pale colour for summer and a long sleeved version in a warm tone for winter. I also believe it would make a stunning wedding dress or bridesmaids dresses. The entire dress is worked in one piece, in the round from the hem up and the pattern is in charted form only. Clear instructionsare given for incorporating an elasticated waistband to give the dress extra shape. The skirt can also be made as long or short as you please by adding in or taking away pattern repeats and full, clear instructions are given throughout the pattern for how to do this. Following the pattern as it is written gives a 27" length skirt which is a nice knee length on most people. The pictured dress has a 32" skirt - mid calf length on the 5'6" model. The model has a 34" bust and wears a size S dress.
