Silver leaves dress is an adaptation of the knitting pattern initially designed for American Girl dolls. Now it is scaled down to perfectly 16 inch Animators dolls.
This is an advanced and very involved pattern. You have to have experience in fine lace knitting to successfully make this dress. Not for beginner or even for intermediate knitter. You will have to follow the instructions very attentively.
Written in row by row format plus is fully charted for those who prefer to work lace from charts.
The dress is worked in one piece, flat, from the bottom up, with no sewing required. It features a midi length A-line skirt and a bodice without any armhole shaping. Dolly velcro type closure on the back. A length of the I-cord with two beads at its ends makes for a pretty bow that embellishes the front of the dress.
(Detailed tutorial on how to insert velcro type fastener in fine doll knits is available on my website at www.lellemoda.com under Tutorials tab).
