One last summer dress!

I just finished this dress in time for my BBQ!

I embroidered a little leaf on it as a finishing touch.

I don't have the pattern number right now, it might be discontinued anyway. I'm sure you were dying to make the same dress.

Isn't this HILARIOUS?

Saturday, September 08, 2007


What was supposed to be a quick two hour project turned into a two week endeavor. But that's probably just because of my lack of knitting expertise. Oh, and a waistband that doesn't stretch.
Without ribbon

With ribbon

I had to block the undies three times in order to get the waistband to stretch out enough to get them on, and it's still a bit of a struggle to get it over my butt. But they fit my hips, so I didn't want to stretch them out too much. I don't know if it's supposed to stretch since the edging around the top is crocheted, which doesn't stretch that much or if maybe my bind off was too tight and that's the problem. I like the way it looks, though and I still think silk yarn is amazing, and pretty easy to work with. So I give this project a B-.

Here's the link to the pattern:
