Maddie Leaf Motif Dress Knitting pattern
Maddie has a fitted bodice with a fabulously full and swirly skirt. Knitted in the round, there is little sewing up at the end. The leaf motif is the feature of this design and it carries through from the skirt to an emblem on the sleeves and cluster on the back. The dress is photographed with a black petticoat underneath.
