The Love Magick Dress, is designed by Holly (@discostitch on Instagram and Ravelry).
The Love Magick Sweater, but make it a dress! This dress is knit from the top down with raglan seams in DK weight yarn and is designed to have a close fit with slight waist shaping that then flares out in a mini skirt with lace trim. Options are given for a babydoll dress (as shown in the sample) or a longer skater dress. The sleeves are also customizable, with options for a large, dramatic bell sleeve or a gently increasing small bell sleeve. Instructions are included for modifying the body and sleeve length.
These kits will ship within 2-3 weeks.
