1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Empire-line dress from a vintage pattern on: June 17, 2007 06:04:17 AM
I love vintage patterns and have a huge collection of them.  I even use them sometimes.  Wink
Here is a recent project.  I bought the pattern on ebay, and made the dress out of stretch denim.  I want to make another, maybe in satin or silk to wear on special occasions.
Here's the pattern:

and here's my take on it:

Thanks for looking  Smiley
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / FO: Calista's Alexander McQueen Knockoff Project on: June 04, 2007 04:57:37 AM
Wow, what a great pattern.  Thanks Calista!  This was my first project with cables and Calista's charts were fantastic for keeping track of cables and increases/decreases.

I used Paton's fireside (a dk weight yarn)
Thanks for looking
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My new knitted top for autumn on: April 29, 2007 03:42:48 AM
I finished it today! It's the body and sleeves of 'Dogwood Donna' from spring knitscene (which I made already and have worn a lot, perfect for our just-starting autumn here in Australia.)  On the front I duplicate stitched a rose from a chart in the recent winter Vogue Knitting International.  I didn't do the ribbed neck from Dogwood Donna this time, I just finished the neck with single crochet. 
I love vintagey looking knits.  Thanks for looking!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dogwood Donna from spring Knitscene on: February 11, 2007 01:10:40 AM
Here is my version of Dogwood Donna from the spring 2007 Knitscene.  I substituted yarns (I used Patons Jet, a wool/alpaca blend.)  This is a very quick knit!  I like its retro-ness.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
