Your doll will love this dress! The skirt is knitted using a lace motif that leaves a pretty scalloped edge along the bottom. The lace motif is pretty simple and should be easy even for a less experienced knitter.

The dress is knitted from the bottom up, with seams in the rear and along the shoulders. It features a back closure.

The high empire-style waist leaves you with many options. The full-length dress you see in the picture is made with 6 repeats of the lace pattern. Try knitting 4 or 3 for a more casual summer-length dress. 2 or 3 for a “Tinkerbell” look.
