Lace Dress Body - English

The Lace Dress Body is a dainty yet practical bodysuit. The interior bodysuit makes sure that the dress keeps in place when the baby is lying down or crawling on the floor, and it also covers the diaper.
The Lace Dress Body is worked from the bottom and up. First the bodysuit is worked until the yoke, then the skirt is worked and afterwards the two pieces are joined finishing with the yoke. The upper part of the yoke is worked back and forth to form the slit at the back of the neck. I-cord edges are worked along the armhole and the leg opening.
The Lace Dress Body is finished with buttons between the legs as well as a button to close the slit.
