Notes

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

Nupps. 6 sts into 1 st back and front, then 6 sts transffered to the left needles and knitted through the back loop into 1 st.

Top. Bottom up in rounds, 140 sts from the bottom in width. The bottom border before waist band is Afterglow shawlpattern.

Then the bodice is knitted in seafoam pattern. Embellished with st.sts with some nupps on it. Band is done with plain st. sts with nups and elastic was used on the bottom and top to create snug fit. Collar is a ruffle in plain st. sts with nupps after sts were picked up all around the yoke.

Skirt. Bottom up, 430 sts wide. Bottom portion is knitted using Afterglow pattern shawl. Then seafoam pattern is intermittent with plain st. sts with nupps. Band completed with elastic.

I love this project. Very Very delicate. Yarn is so thin, my garment looks very fragile (just illusion). Should be very careful though not to snag on this particular fabric because of the openness of the pattern.
