Rita Dress

Knitting pattern for a sweet summer  dress for 18 inch American Girl dolls.

The dress that is worked flat from the top down with classic raglan shaped armholes and bell shaped skirt with wide ruffle border. Front of the dress is decorated with small felt flowers that are arranged in heart shape. Zipper closure on the back.
The templates for heart and flowers are given, when printing that page  set your printer to "no scaling".
The pattern is not for a novice knitter, it is graded intermediary but suitable for an adventurous advanced beginner also.

The invisible increase stitches might be unfamiliar to you, but I have provided the link t the video tutorial.

The pattern is written two formats, the regular row by row and a simplified table format. The last one is the easiest to follow.
The templates for heart and flowers are given, when printing that page do set your printer on "no scaling".
