Make a dainty dress for dainty little girls. This simple, but fun dress is perfect for all the dancing girls with it's big dancing skirt. Worked top down. To make measuring the length of the sleeves and skirt easier, the dress is worked top down. The whole upperpart is worked in rows, then the sleeves are worked before the skirt at the end. You can choose to knit the sleeve in 3 different ways depending on which expression you want; short sleeve, long sleeve with simple moss stitch around the wrist or a tight-fitting sleeve with ruffles around the wrist.
