The Love Magick sweater, but make it a dress! This dress is knit from the top down with raglan seams in DK weight yarn and is designed to have a close fit with slight waist shaping that then flares out in a mini skirt with lace trim. Options are given for a babydoll dress (as shown in the sample) or a longer skater dress. The sleeves are also customizable, with options for a large, dramatic bell sleeve or a gently increasing small bell sleeve. Instructions are included for modifying the body and sleeve length.

(XS, S, M) (L, XL, 2XL) (3XL, 4XL, 5XL)

This garment is designed with 0-2” (0-5cm) positive or negative ease in the chest, to be close fitting and give the bell sleeves a dramatic effect.
