Let me put some life back in here and what could possibly be a better day for this than today 🙂
I have a couple of FO’s to show you, but I’ll do one at the time.
First one is this dress I made for my daughter. Euuhmmm, didn’t I say (probably even in my last post!) I was going to do more S.M.A.L.L. projects??
Okay, let’s say any next project will be smaller than this one, haha!
I used DROPS Alpaca for it, just like Veera in her pattern. But when the yarn arrived I couldn’t believe I could get a dress out of this. It looked so thin and almost miserable.
I checked the pattern again because I really thought I’d made a mistake. I also checked others’ project pages having used the same yarn and their dresses all looked fine.
Never judge by the looks. This yarn knits up quite fluffy and it turned out to be just perfect for this pattern.
It was a little difficult to determine a good length for this. Also, after blocking the dress had grown just a little too much, that is for my 16 year old girl who turned 17 today!
I would wear it at this length, but I guess it’s different for young girls.
The pictures still show the dress at the old length, but in the meantime I’ve shortened it and I have to agree the shorter version looks better on her.
