This dress turned out very well, but I just realized there are no directions for buttonholes on the upper back. I'll have to find another way to close the opening or rip out. Thanks.

I just finished the dress and have the same question! I'm new to knitting and don't really know how to plan a buttonhole. Can you let me know if you found a solution? I'm making three of them for my granddaughters.

I made small crochet chains and sewed them on the dress as loops. It worked but I should have asked someone who crochets to do it for me. Hope you've found something that works.
