PATTERN NOTES The body of this dress is knit in the round from the bottom up. After the skirt portion is finished, stitches are decreased for the bodice and continued in the round to the underarms. Stitches for the underarm are bound off and raglan shaping commences. The sleeves are knit flat from the bottom up and sewn to the body. A rolled stockinette edging around the neck and sleeves create minimal finishing.
