Sugar and Spice. Army of Knitters Parfait Dress Pattern by Heather Dixon. A beautiful, open lace stitch combined with a gorgeously soft yarn make this simple mini-dress a stunning piece of knitwear. A deeply plunging V back contrast with the high neckline of the front. The long, Biba-esque, sleeves are knitted down from the dropped shoulders making this a completely seamless knit.
