This is the perfect versatile dress – you can dress it up for a date with jewelry and heels, or wear it to the office with leggings and boots. This dress has positive ease for a totally roomy and comfortable fit, with an optional added knitted bow belt that will cinch in the dress to accentuate your waist and flatter your figure. While this dress is delicate and feminine, it is knit with DK weight yarn so it won’t take forever to knit! Knit in the round, this dress is also an entirely seamless knit, woohoo! You can easily customize the length of your dress to make it longer, or you can even make it shorter to knit it as an equally beautiful lace top!
Instructions are included for both the Top and Dress versions of this design. Detailed instructions are also included for customizing the length of your Dress or Top to suite your unique preferences. Both designs are knit in the round from the bottom up, with the dress featuring a scalloped hem, and the top featuring a ribbed hem. The bow belt is optional and knit separately, with instructions on how to make it completely customized to your waist size. Elastic is inserted into the belt so that if fits snuggly.
