Notes

I modified the skirt part of the dress to fit my “petite” stature: i’m 5.2ft tall

  • from the armhole, my dress total length is 65 cm (25 ½ “)
  • width at the hem is also 65 cm.
  • I decreased for the waist as per pattern
  • I made only increases every 4 rounds and went until I had 238 total stitches (enough for 7 pattern repeats) : 74 st between markers (round #141)
  • then I followed chart 6 from row 33 and finished as per pattern

I also modified the sleeves which were too large

  • 1st round as per pattern ➔ 72 st
  • K63 SSK K5 K2TOG ➔ 70 st
  • K63 SSK K3 K2TOG ➔ 68 st
  • K63 SSK K1 K2TOG ➔ 66 st
  • K63 CDD ➔ 64 st
  • (K6 K2TOG) x 8 ➔ 56 st
  • Rounds 1;2;3;4;5 of chart #5
  • (K5 K2TOG) x 8 ➔ 48 st
  • P around
