My first knitted doll dress (and first knitted dress of course) for my daughter’s American Girl doll. I picked the yarn because it’s her favorite color du jour and happened to have a cool ribbon and beads for the buttons. You start knitting from the bottom, and I had to start several times (remember I’m a newbie) and when I had gotten going, I saw that I’d not done the stockinette stitch where I should have about an inch from the bottom. I think of it as a “ruffle” in her dress. Here’s the pattern if you’d like to see it.
