I've been a knitter since 2004. I was hooked from the first stitch. This is my blog on knitting and sewing. And any other craft I happen to take a liking to.

Something resembling a dress is actually coming together! I still have the sleeves and the hemline to do. When I tried it on yesterday I realized that there is a not so attractive crease on the back and the front is slouching a bit, so I'll have to take off probably an inch over the shoulders. Which means I have to modify the sleeves too, but I'm not too worried about that.

This is what it looks like now:


And this is what it hopefully will look like when I've altered it a bit:

I'm really excited about finishing this, I can't wait to go to a nice summer party sipping magaritas wearing this! ;-)

I have the same pattern but my envelope is missing the fabric required for each size and other notions. Do you care to share this information? I will be making a size 14. Chelsea.Bessinger@gmail.com

Fascinating fabric - esp combined with the retrofashionable cut of the dress.

Kul! Blir inspirerad att plocka fram symaskinen. Hoppas jag får se klänningen live också.

Vilken jättecool klänning! Fint tyg och fin modell, det blir en sommarhöjdare. Det är kul att sy, blir alltför sällan för mig nuförtiden.

Underbar klänning!! Jag röstar oxå för ärmlöst, tycker att den är helt bedårande!!!Helt klart den sötaste klänning jag sett i år!

Klänningen blir härlig, speciellt med det somriga tyget. Måste den ha ärmar? Den är ju fin utan, tycker i alla fall jag. Hoppas du har det bra!

Wow, vilket coolt tyg. Klänningen sitter så fint redan, så det kan bara bli snyggt slutresultat!! Åh, vad sugen jag blir på att gå på sommarfest och smutta på margaritas. Ja, här blir det mest parkleken numera och smutta på festis och käka mariekex ;) Visserligen festligt på sitt sätt...
