The Lily Dress is a great knit for those wanting to try a dress without too difficult a stitch pattern. Inspired by the fabulous evening wear of the 1920’s and 30’s, Lily is relatively easy to make as the skirt and body are knitted in the round, with the bodice becoming two pieces after the underarm cast off.
