Maddie Leaf Dress Knitting Kit
Maddie is an exquisitely shaped design with a fabulously full and swirly skirt. The dress has half length sleeves, a round neckline and drop waist skirt. 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. Anyone wearing Maddie will truly make a statement where ever they go. The dress is photographed with a black petticoat underneath.
