This dress is knitted bottom up, and in the round. Both the skirt and the sleeves are knitted with a facing. The skirt is A-line with decreases and there are increases from the waist to the chest. The sleeves are very short, and are set in on the same circular needle as the dress before the yoke is knit. There are decreases on the yoke, and the yoke is also knitted a little higher in the back to give a little more room for the shoulders and neck. The holes under the arms are kitchenered together after you cast off, but other than that no assembly is necessary. The linen yarn that is used is unfortunately not easily available, since it is bought in Florence, Italy.
