Dottie Dress Knitting Pattern
Dottie is a simple, elegant, easy to make dress with two-tone features at the elbow and a frilled hem. The option of a pocket adds a sophisticated touch and is great for keeping your mobile and lipstick handy! A chic garment to wear at work or any occasion where style and elegance are the buzz words for the event.
If not comfortable with the idea of “a knitted dress on bare skin”, a simple chemise or camisole top and petticoat would create an invisible lining and smooth the feminine outline that Dottie makes.
