Isla - A Seamless Modern Baptism / Christening Dress
One week out from the big day, I thought “BLEEP!!!, time to cast on!”. Needed something simple, fast but with a bit of “WOW” factor (and not too much puff or ruffle) … No time to hunt for a pattern so made it up as I went along …
This dress is knit from the waistband upwards, to complete the bodice. The lace section is then picked up along the bottom of the waistband and worked downwards, to complete the skirt. The dress is fastened by two small buttons at the back (the button band is built into the bodice). The flared shaping in the skirt is achieved by periodically increasing needle size.
One size only, (unstretched) measurements as follows:
• Waistband = 49cms (this sits high, as an empire line)
• Centre of front neckline to bottom of skirt = 70cms
• Circumference around bottom of skirt = 100cms
I hope you enjoy the pattern!
