Hi! I made this dress for the last Blythe swap and had a couple requests on Ravelry for a pattern - so here you go! further pics etc on my blog http://knit-north.blogspot.com/2007/09/molly-dress-little-mod-number-for.html 

SIZE
12" Blythe Doll

MATERIALS
   Lang Jawoll sock yarn [75% superwash wool,18% nylon,7% acrylic 206 yards per 50 gram ball] - I love Jawoll! It is a lighter weight than most sock yarns, which is great for doll clothes. The best thing about it is each skein includes a 5g spool of reinforcement thread ~ perfect to sew on buttons, sequins etc!
   two doll sized buttons
   sequins, beads [optional]
   set of four 2.75 mm [US size #2] needles

PATTERN
Body:
   CO 40 sts. leave a tail aprox 3 inches long
   Knit 2 rows. Join - being careful not to twist.
   Eyelet Row: *K2tog YO* repeat
   Knit 10 rows
   Reduce row: *K3, K2tog* repeat (end up with 32 sts)
   K1P1 Rib for 4 rows
   Knit 12 rows

Divide for Front:
   K16 turn, P16
   K1P1 for 3 (or 4) rows
   Cast off Purl wise

Back:
   Pick up 16 sts at the Back
   Stockinette 4 rows (K on RS, P on WS)
   Next row P on RS
   Eyelet Row: *K2tog YO* repeat
   P 1 row
   Cast off

FINISHING
Use yarn tail from bottom to sew the bottom 2 rows together.
Sew on 2 buttons to the top front edges (use the eyelet holes as button holes) If desired, sew on sequins and/or beads to skirt portion. Weave in ends.


Hope you enjoy! if you have questions let me know - this is the first pattern I have written up, so fingers crossed I am clear.
I'd love to see other versions - please post them!
