Notes

My tutorials. See my tutorial how to block dresses: https://www.heavenlyclassyknits.com/tutorials

I was inspired by this shawl. This dress is seriously light! I look like a cloud. The waist band is done on US 1 and was attached by 3 bind off method.

Skirt. Strated with 120sts from waist,bottom is 300 sts, knitted in rounds.

Top. Bottom up, sts picked up from the waist band. Sleeves are done separately: 30 sts increased to 40 sts.

Slip. 100% polyester, light blue color.

Super easy dress, the travelling project (I was on business trip and was stuck in the airport for hours!!!). Highly recommend for all, especially for beginners.

Note on the yarn. this yarn is absolutely amazing: light, shiny with a perfect fluff!! I felt in love with it. I have ordered more of this yarn to make another dress out of it.
