Knitted Party Dress: This pattern gives directions to knit the dress pictured. Now, this vintage 1942 pattern does not translate well to the big screen, but look closely as it's an adorable little dress. It features a back neck closure, little Peter Pan collar, raised yoke with two bands of ribbon woven through the bodice and short sleeves. The design is worked in standard knitting and moss stitches. The actual size is not stated, however, based on the measurements, I'd suggest between 12 and 24 months, depending upon your childs' size.
