– This dress is meant to be a mid-mini dress with 3/4 sleeves, a boat neck and a deep hem
– The main body of the dress uses the very stretchy and pliable Moss Stitch (aka Granite Stitch aka Linen Stitch) and the cuffs and hem are made using Single Crochet in the Back Loop Only
– The dress is made in a loose stitch which not only gives it lots of stretch and give, but also means it requires a slip or a cami … and since it’s ‘roomy’ it’s comfy on it’s own and also looks great with a belt
– This is a fairly flexible pattern in terms of adjusting the length of the skirt of the sleeve – to do either, just add the desired number of rows (2 rows = 1” in additional length)
*** please note that, while making this it may not look like it’s long enough, but this stitch has LOTS of stretch to it, especially with the weight of the bottom hem, so it WILL stretch and hold its length
– To wash/care instructions: This is an acrylic project, so the suggestion is to wash on gentle setting, then shape and lay flat to dry – a tumble dry at the end for 10 minutes is also ok.
