A simple seamless knit easy enough for the beginner.

Designed as a stash buster knit, ideally suited to variegated yarn, this dress can be made with as little as 200grams of DK weight yarn and half a ball of contrasting scraps.

Inspired by ballet style knits dress has a fake sash, crossover bodice, flared sleeves and a lovely elongated skirt.

As with all my patterns, I strongly advise choosing sizing based on chest measurement rather than age.

I’ve changed the name of this pattern, as reflecting on it now 11 years after publication I don’t think it is an appropriate name. I’m deeply sorry if the previous name offended anyone. The name was chosen as a play on the flower of the same name, and I understand that that lack of thought and consideration was a mistake. I am sorry.
