This knitting pattern includes two really fun dresses. The design is named "Fun Dresses" because the stitch pattern on the skirt looks really cute both on the right as well as the wrong side, so two dress styles are offered using both sides. Both dresses are knit flat from hem upwards with a back closure of 6 buttons.
To add a special touch to the pattern, there are two panties options: one with short rows (for dolls with fuller ''derriere'') and also panties without the short rows. Bonus instructions for a hair tie are included.
You'll get some great inspiration from the Testers photos in the pattern. There are many possibilities to decorate these dresses such as using contrast yarn and single crochet along the armholes and also edges of panties. You can also become creative with the bow and also the I-Cord belt. Add tiny satin roses to the waist. Have fun knitting these dresses!
Stitches used: knit, purl, YO, skp, kf&b and knit 2 together
Recommended Yarn: Any Double Knit or Weight 3 that will give you the appropriate gauge.

Great fit. As a beginner knitter, I was able to complete without trouble. Love the button back.
I enjoyed knitting this dress, the pattern was very clear and easy to follow. It has instructions for two different looks of the dress and even includes instructions for panties and a hair tie! I am very pleased with how the dress and panties fit on my "Our Generation" (Target brand) doll.
Thsi was an easy, well laid out pattern to follow. I liked that I could change the look of the dress by adding borders, different skirt patterns along with adding one's own touches. This dress can be made very dressy or more everyday whatever your mood and yarn at hand. My granddaughters loved the dress so much that they were fighting over which one gets it for their doll so I have to knit up another one in different colours. One of the best patterns I have had the pleasure to knit up and it went quite quickly from start to finish.
