This dress is very easy to wear. It is comfortable, but, feels so light and pretty.
It is knit with negative ease and blocked to size to emphasise the lace detail.
The lace pattern is a 14 row repeat, but many of the rows are the same and, thus, it is easy to remember, which makes this a nice knit!
The little cables at the waist give a beautiful synched-in effect. It could be worn with a belt, a ribbon as I have or without anything.
Sizes available are 32/34: 36/38: 40/42
The pattern takes 6/7 X 50g balls of Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace
You may need to use a larger needle to cast off, if you cast off tightly, as the dress , being lace, needs to stretch to be blocked.
