I am sort of designing on the fly here. I’m making a dress for my six year old, top down in the round.
I did a lace pattern waist band and now I am on to the skirt portion. I was trying to make it more interesting than an a-line by doing my increases in the front and back. I have 150 stitches around. I placed markers 19 stitches in from each side on the front and back (leaving 37 stitches across the middle of the front and back). Every 6 rows I am increasing by 8 (one stitch on each side of each stitch marker).
I can’t tell if this is going to look weird or not. I want it to have kind of a pleated look so it will flare out if she spins, but hang neatly when she is standing. Is this going to work? I haven’t increased on the sides at all but I’m wondering if I should, and if I should only be increasing inside the markers (for a total of 4 increases each increase round).
What do you think? Thanks.
