Andrea Rangel's Katie Summer Dress is a
flattering summer dress with a fitted bodice and A-line skirt worked in
engaging, textured stitches. The back is fastened with delicate buttons and
crochet button loops, and the neckline and armholes are edged with a simple
round of garter stitch.
Rib band is worked first. Bodice and skirt are picked up up
from either side of the rib band and worked in opposite directions. Bodice st
patt is very stretchy and is meant to be worn with no ease or some negative
ease; choose the bust size that is close to or slightly smaller than your actual
bust measurement. Sample shown in size S.
