The most beautiful dress I’ve seen was an authentic 1930s knit dress that unfortunately was the wrong size. I therefore had no choice but to make my own – and thus the Deco Dream Dress was born!

It has feminine open slit shoulders that tie at the shoulder and elbow, and an iconic Art Deco colourblock pattern of 3 colours. The dress has endless colourcombinations to fit all tastes and seasons.

The bodice and skirt are knit seperately, and are sewn together at the end, and the seam is then covered with a knit belt.

Apart from yarn and circular needles you also need a belt buckle (have a look on etsy for authentic 1930s ones!)

Needles: Circular needles 3,5mm

Yarn: Pickles Soft Merino

Size: (XS) S (M) L (XL)

NOTE ON AVAILABLE SIZES - if you want to knit this, or any of my patterns, in a larger size than I currently have published, please get in touch! The only reason it is not available in larger sizes is I couldn’t get testknitters for those sizes, and I don’t want anyone to pay for a pattern and knit a size thats not been tested. So if you would like to (test)knit this - or any of my patterns! - in a larger size than is currently available, drop me a message and I’ll send you the pattern for free!
