finally a finished object - revival dress

so I finally managed to get some decent pictures of me wearing my first knitted dress. Last year I was knitting on and off on this dress from August 2011 till October 2012 - and only now I got to wear it, the weather is finally springy!

Pattern: revival by Ankestrick .. the original pattern is for a pullover using the contiguous method. I enjoyed this new method very much. No sewing is always something that catches me. I would change a few little bits when using this yarn again with this method, like not making the arms as wide as I did here. The overall shape though is lovely. The yarn is gorgeous too! it's a cotton/linen/silk blend and I have more than enough to make another dress, so I think I will make a cardigan from the leftovers. The quality feels perfect on the skin with the warmer weather.

Changes to the original pattern: basically I followed the pattern. It's top down which made it a lot easier to turn it into a dress. I added some short rows to create more room for the boobs and I also added waist shaping. The waist shaping also was the base for the increases that I simply continued to create an A-line to the skirt. Turned out great!

I simply love this dress although a knitted garment doesn't hide any curve, if you know what I mean ;)

have a lovely knitting weekend,
Diana
