This dress is knitted seamlessly from the top down, using primarily stockinette stitch. The sleeves feature raglan construction. As an accent, I added 3 colored bands to the hem using reverse stockinette stitch. This gives them something of a 3-D look and also contributes to shaping the skirt. You can omit them altogether, or just knit them in the same yarn as the rest of the dress if you would like them to stand out less.

I used crochet to make the button band at the back of the dress, just because this method is the easiest for me. There are different ways to do this, however, so feel free to use your favorite!

The Girl’s Old-Time Raglan Banded Dress is a matching dress for the girl who happens to own the doll.
