Create a lovely dance outfit using only stockinette and garter stitch. Knit flat from bottom upwards, in one piece until armhole division. Sleeves are created by casting on extra stitches at the armholes. The dress has an overskirt. Use lovely bright colours or glittering yarn at the hem and bodice to make each dress something special! The skirt has a back seam with a button for closure. The low back gives it a Lyrical look.
The skirt part can be lengthened to make a pretty party or flower girl dress.
A dance dress is not complete without a pair of panties and hair tie.
Stitches used: stockinette and garter
