A simple dress with puffed sleeves and a gathered skirt.

Get all 4 of my dress patterns for only $14 in the Dressing Up: The Dress Collection.

The dress is knit in two pieces to add stability and create a seam. The bodice is knit first, from the top down. The live sts are then put on hold while the skirt is worked from the bottom up. The pieces are joined using a 3 needle bind off, making it entirely seamless!

There are four options outlined for the skirt: Full Skirt or Narrower Skirt in either dress or tunic length. The sample is the full skirt dress in size 2 years.
