DIY Kit - Long Dress
The front and back of this dress are knit flat in two separate panels. The panels are then seamed together at the shoulders. Then, sleeve stitches are picked up from the edge of the body of the garment. Each sleeve is worked in the round from armhole to cuff. The sides of the dress are seamed together, and then two neck ties are created (either with fingers or a crochet hook) and attached to the neckline of the dress.
