The dress is knitted from top to bottom.
You will need underdress and underskirt to promote wideness of knitted dress in it’s lower part.
I made underdress of Italian silk chiffon and underskirt of American nylon-chiffon (usually used for american pettiskirts).
The size of dress is determined mostly by underdress. Knitted dress is more or less elastic due to knitted structure so it fits for wide size range: 34-38.
I add instruction to make underskirt of American nylon-chiffon. You need 10 yards (9 meters).
It has 54" (140cm) wide.
Skirt size: for hip circumference not more than 130cm. Length is app 100cm.
The pattern is in English + Russian (02/10/2014).
