Pattern last updated on March 13, 2019.
Fun to knit and to wear, Seamless Flower Dress has an unusual construction: you work upper front and upper back starting from the centre of the flower motif outwards, then add a top down skirt and raglan sleeves - and you do it all seamlessly. The pattern has two sleeve length options: long and short.
More patterns with flower motifs, for kids and adults, are available in my Ravelry store.

The pattern is available in English, Polish and Danish - Thank you to Asta-Denmark for the Danish translation.
